<div class="moz-cite-prefix">I'll check the KCAH call tomorrow.<br>
We can only have 1 antenna and transmitter. From a cost point of
view co-locating it at Noisebridge is the best.<br>
It has been a long day. I will investigate on the government sites
tomorrow. Call this an initial heads up. We only have 2 months to
get it together.<br>
As for transmitting a show, it is likely that we could set up an
internet feed and do pre-recorded. I will fimd out.<br>

back people were talking about getting a part of the Radio
Spectrum for Noisebridge. Well here it is. I can work out
the technical parts but somebody else needs to take care of
the filings. The window of opportunity is October 15-29,
2013 and for the first time urban stations will be allowed.
The license holder must have been in the community for at
least 2 years.<br>
The range is about 10 miles although given our location at
the bottom of a valley I wouldn't bet on it. With this power
it is line-of-sight. We should be able to hit Dolores Park
and most of the Market Street area from the Civic Center
North. Bayview and Hunter's Point? Forget it there is a hill
in the way. These are just guesses.<br>
We need to prove that we won't interfere with existing
stations. That starts with just walking around the Mission
and listening to your FM Radio. The more technical details I
will work out with some modeling software later.<br>
The FCC is giving extra points to stations that will be on
the air at least 20 hours a day and is "publicly
accessible". A good time to reach out to our neighbors. I am
assuming that some of that can be pre-recorded or streamed
in from the net. If it is coming over the net we will need
to be very careful about who has access. There's that whole
no profanity rule.<br>
So let us get K - - - on the air. KNOS, NBRG, KNOI are all
taken and it must start with a K, West of the Mississippi
