MicroRadio

July 2nd, 2003 · No Comments

BoingBoing writes about an idea which could be an interesting one for rural areas: “A group of underground music enthusiasts have come up with an ingenious hack to the FCC’s rules on low-power FM radio. It’s legal to broadcast very low-power FM radio signals that can be received in a 200-foot radius. By encouraging Internet users spaced at 200′ intervals around your hometown to download the same Internet radio station and rebroadcast it over cheap-lass low-power FM emitters, you can create a micropower city-wide radio-station.”
