All this is great stuff for the NB Radio page, Norman. :)
If you could put it there that would help document the FCC requirements,
& help this radio project move forward.
Some really important stuff is the FCC's specific requirements, like the
# of hours programming. per day, their preferences, etc.
Some links to the relevant info on their website.
Is some of it in a PDF?
If so, could you copy that onto the nb radio wiki page?
Thanks for all your great work! :)
