There are many tools available on the internet for finding a frequency that may (or may not) work in your area. If you are comfortable using these resources, and want to file your own application, then by all means you should do so. If you have friends who are broadcast engineers and know the ins and outs of dealing with the FCC, then you're in great shape.
However, if none of the above applies to you, then we offer a service you may want to check into.
For a flat fee, we will research your area, find a frequency that, in our best judgement, has a reasonable chance of success, and fill out the engineering portion of the FCC Form 318 for a new LPFM station for you. Here's the important part-IF WE CAN'T FIND A FREQUENCY THAT WILL WORK, THEN THERE'S NO CHARGE TO YOU. This means that there's no risk to you or your organization. We'll also be available for telephone consultation (reasonable limits apply, of course) at no extra charge. Now, we're not attorneys, and cannot offer any kind of legal advice. We can give suggestions based on doing this type of work for many years now. If you need a local attorney, you can always find them on line or in the telephone yellow pages. If you need an FCC attorney, there are several we'll be happy to recommend. Call us and we'll explain the entire procedure.
Remember, start making your plans right now. The filing window in October may only last one week. Every consultant doing LPFM work (and there are a bunch out there) is going to be busy. Don't be disappointed-get help now, if you can't do it yourself.
If you are fortunate enough to win an LPFM construction permit-where do you go from here? If you and your volunteers are experienced and can do the job yourself, then you deserve a pat on the back. But, if you want to get on the air with a minimum of worry and bother, then turn to professional broadcast engineers with over 45 years experience in new station, studio, transmitter and antenna construction.
We offer a turnkey package-we'll supply all the equipment you need for your new LP-100 facility (antenna, transmitter, transmission line, audio processing, audio console, program origination equipment and more), fly out to your location, set up, install, proof and show you how to operate your new facility. All inclusive! No extras to worry about. Travel, hotel, transportation, meals-all taken care of. You pay one low price and we do it all. We specify all brand new, factory fresh equipment, tuned and tested to your frequency!
We have a special introductory price available right now. For details, contact us. That's all there is to it!
