The project I am trying to start in the north west desert of Arizona is a low power FM radio station. The file date opens at FCC in October this year. I need to be minimally organized by then and have a few steal shipping containers to build the broadcast studio in. I also need to fence the property and have power, water and phone at the structure.
Though we are not under this license able to offer a regular commercial we are able to make known the list of supporters who have donated.
Community based radio is important because it gives voice to a community its interests and what happens locally with the people who live there. That is what you do not hear from large broadcast operations such as "Clear Channel" who use satilite systems to program hundereds of stations from one location, thus hamoginizing the radio expierence like so much processed cheeze.
Our first funding goal is $85,000.00 the following goal begining in November to June of 2014 is $250,000.00. Afterward $5million a year to support operations and programing. Once we are established and licensed by FCC then you may donate through Saint George Chapel which is Nonprofit and federally exempt your donation to us at CHURCH RADIO will then be tax deductable. you can find us there at www.saintgeorgechapel.org Become a member join the prayer warriors group and your membership there will support the station.
