Creative Low Power FM Radio Initiatives
Welcome to the Microradio
Implementation Project, created to help you learn more about low power FM
radio. Because we were called into action in January 2000, we are coordinating
much of our work with national organizations involved with community broadcasting
and special constituent groups. You will find references to them in this web site.
Thank you for your patience in waiting for us to appear here. We have been very
involved in answering calls and queries from throughout the nation via all technologies
possible, so now we can offer this site as an additional resource. Weekly updates
will be in the offing as well as amplification in its design. We welcome your
comments and ideas for what we should post.
and education about low power radio development and licensing process
and teleconferencing where possible on the license and filing process, program
planning, and emerging technology. We are compiling lists of groups in regional
clusters to determine when and where and for whom we will organize a workshop.
Do let us know if you want one where you are.
