Low Power Radio Conference Held in Davis
Sun Oct 2 2005
Low Power Radio Roundup on October 8th and 9th
On October 8th and 9th, KDRT-LPFM hosted the Low Power Radio Roundup, an event meant to bring together the many emerging community stations around California and Oregon. Photos In 2000, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) created the low power radio service, as a way for community groups to get access to the airwaves in a time of excessive radio consolidation. Since then, over 80 new radio stations have hit the air in California alone. As these community groups have little prior experience in radio, this conference is meant to provide a space for these stations to network and share skills and experience. The event included trainings in radio journalism, internet streaming, and radio theater. It also covered a variety of station management and legal issues. In addition to inviting low power radio stations, this event brought together more established community and pirate radio stations from California and Oregon. It was co-sponsored by the Prometheus Radio Project, KPFA, and the UC Davis Technocultural Studies department. Audio about the low power radio movement and its roots in pirate radio. Read the conference announcement, with a description of workshops and information about registering.
