The FCC has granted a construction permit for a low-power FM radio station in the bay area. Coos Community Radio, a non-profit organization was formed to take advantage of an historic filing window, not expected to be repeated again, to obtain a non-commercial radio license for hyper local programming.
Low Powered-High Impact! Our community is building a local low powered FM radio station from the ground-up. The purpose is to create a dialogue through unbiased reporting and local music emphasizing youth participation. In case of an environmental catastrophe, the station will be a go-to source for recovery projects that support resiliency efforts. This station may be LOW-POWER but, it will have HIGH IMPACT in the Bay Area.
The construction permit allows 18 months to secure a tower location, a broadcast station and associated equipment. Coos Community Radio currently has six board members and is looking for interested volunteers to help bring this project to reality.
