“Making #LPFM a reality in San Francisco is like trying to climb the pyramids of Giza all at the same time,” one of my favorite radio station makers tweeted about twenty hours ago. To the rescue (hopefully) comes the Federal Communications Commission, which has just announced two webinars on Low Power FM.
The first will be held on Tuesday August 20. Topics will include:
“an overview of the low power radio service; how to use the Commission’s LPFM Channel Finder; instructions on creating a CDBS account; and how to fill out the application (Form 318), among others. Details on the second webinar, to be held in early October, will be provided in a subsequent announcement.”
The webinar will stream at www.fcc.gov/live and will be archived at www.fcc.gov/event and www.fcc.gov/events/webinars-low-power-fm-radio. The FCC application window for LPFM stations is coming soon: October 15 through October 29.
“Participants can submit questions by email during the webinars to firstname.lastname@example.org or by Twitter using the hashtag, #LPFMquestions,” the FCC announcement adds. “As many questions as possible will be answered during the sessions.”
