  ACTION
On January 20th 2000 the FCC voted in favor of creating a Low-Power FM radio service! It was to be non-commercial educational service with two tiers: 10 watts and 100 watts. Over 1200 groups have applied for licenses!
Some people don't want LPFM to happen, though, and moved to kill it, which led to Congress severely restricting LPFM by attaching a rider to an appropriations bill, which was signed by former President Clinton.
Read the
LPFM page for some basic information regarding Low Power radio and then contact your elected officials and voice your opinion.
