FCC OKs Low Power Radio

FCC OKs Low Power Radio: The Federal Communications Commision today announced plans to allow noncommercial organizations to create low power FM radio stations powered up to 10 (1.5 mile radius) and 100 (4 mile radius) watts. This has the potential to be a really good thing. The New York Times carries an article with some soundbites from the National Association of Broadcasters and such advocacy groups as the Low Power Radio Coalition. I don’t know enough about pirate radio to point you to any great sites, so if you’re interested, check out About.com’s pirate/free radio guide. I’m kind of embarrassed that I live in New York City and still haven’t tried to tune in Steal This Radio… they’re still broadca sting, aren’t they?
