Occupy the Airwaves: Tools to Empower Community Radio Stations

Maggie Avener, Ana Martina

The Prometheus Radio Project started with radio pirates fighting for local groups to be able to run community radio stations. Prometheus builds, supports, and advocates for community radio stations which empower participatory community voices and movements for social change. They are currently creating a number of tools to support community groups as they prepare for an upcoming once-in-a-lifetime chance to apply for low power radio licenses. RadioSpark is an online hub where applicants, engineers, lawyers, and other supporters can exchange knowledge and plan together. RFree is free and open source software that applicants can use to find available channels and prepare their FCC applications.
