10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Event Type:
Speaker
Organizer/Author:
Film Arts Foundation
Location Details:
145 Ninth Street (between Mission and Howard)

Sat. & Sun., Aug. 21 & 22, 10–5 pm

This workshop provides an overview of the history, politics, and how-to of the micro-radio movement. Learn how to build FM-broadcast transmitters (and other related items such as antennas) and set up a low-power (15–100 watt) community radio station capable of covering a broadcast radius between 5 and 15 miles, depending on power, terrain, and antenna height. The ins and outs of Web radio broadcasting are also covered.

Instructor Stephen Dunifer is the founder of Free Radio Berkeley and International Radio Action Training Education (IRATE). Disenchanted with the direction of mainstream media, he launched his own unauthorized FM radio station from the hills outside Berkeley in the spring of 1993. Considered the pioneer of the micro-radio movement, he focuses his energy on offering workshops and technical support and distributing simple, inexpensive radio equipment to community radio activists around the world.

$85/Film Arts Foundation members; $150/others.
