I tried to generate some interest in starting a station at Noisebridge 
but the only interest I got was what to call it. If anybody is 
interested in working on Noisebridge Radio please contact me. The filing 
dates are 2 months away which is not as long as you think.

Some of the basics are that the frequency used can't interfere with any 
existing station, max. power is 1000 watts, and preference is given to 
stations that will be on the air at least 20 hours a week. The usual FCC 
regulations apply, no swearing, nothing that promotes any illegal 
activity, etc. There are no restrictions about remote access so people 
could transmit via network access from somewhere else. At that power 
level we should be able to cover the Mission and perhaps leak out to the 
Downtown/Tenderloin area.

The transmitters run in the $2500 - $3500 range and you can't build your 
own. It must be a "type accepted" transmitter. Lower power transmitters 
cost less. Everything else we can build ourselves.
