Help get REC to GRC!
The Grassroots Radio Conference is taking place September 24 through 27 in Palenville, NY hosted this year by WLPP-LP. With all of potential changes on the horizon that can impact LPFM such as the potential of LP-250 and new full-power station classes, the availability of FM translators for LPFM stations, the threat of auctions and crass-commercialism and even issues such as TV channel repacking all have potential impacts on LPFM stations going forward. With other organizations reducing their policy efforts, REC has been carrying a significant amount of the sound, common-sense policy work where it comes to LPFM. Right now, times are tough for REC. This $750 campaign is to help offset REC's costs to send Michi to New York to talk LPFM and update the community on what is happening with the service from a policy perspective. Even if you do not attend GRC this year, the information delivered will be important and will hopefully be archived for everyone to take advantage of.
