Pros and cons of the LPFM project

 Following the publication of a local newspaper article, I received a couple of snail mail letters from local residents. Each sent me a copy of the newspaper clipping and a note. One person used to work in radio, and the other was from a gentlemen I used to work for in a job not related to radio.


I have been weighing the pros and cons of the LPFM radio project, and have now come up with a list of pros and cons.

On the pro side: 

Big D Country's format would be more easily accessible

Localism would be greatly improved

Shut-ins and the elderly could listen

Better opportunities for underwriting support than as web-only


On the con side:

Subject to FCC regulations and restructions

Added expenses

The need to put up a tower

The question of: what happens to the LPFM if we are ever forced to move to a different location



At this point, I do plan to apply. However, it is not the end of the world if I don't get one. I have a Plan B now in place, and it is not radio related.


If you would like to help underwrite our programming, please drop me a line at alanmccal@hotmail.com or check out the Sponsors tab for more information here on the website.

I am a bit disheartened at the lack of support for a format folks say they would like to have available. The non-response has really got me wondering whether pushing for the LPFM is worth the effort. At this moment, well, I am just not sure whether this community wants it or not.
