Low-Watt Radio Wields Its Power

This is an interesting idea - I'm currently involved with a project called OdinLIVES! that does a Heathen radio broadcast on shortwave (and, soon, over the 'Net). The airtime is cheap enough, and the coverage is [theoretically] very good, but I can't help but beleive that a "network" of these kinds of stations would assist us in getting the word out far more effectively than a shortwave or Internet-only broadcast.

Four years ago the FCC made honest people out of a few pirates. Community broadcasters are moving ahead, but getting a license doesn't automatically mean success. Jason Silverman reports from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
