Bedford seeks radio station
Low-power FM radio has been in service since 2000, but in 2011 the FCC opened the opportunity for towns and cities to start radio systems in their communities. For the past few years, ice and severe snowstorms and hurricanes have shut down power, leaving many residents in the dark about emergency information, potential dangers, evacuations and locations of shelters.
"The focus is on safety," he said. "This is going to be general programming provided by students and resident volunteers."
The station would be located in the BCTV studios' annex on Meetinghouse Road, which once housed the old fire station and BCTV's first broadcasting center.
Biedrzycki said programming will be educational and entertaining, much like the eclectic combination of college and public radio stations. The group is seeking volunteers who want to get involved and produce programming.
Low-power radio FM stations are available to noncommercial educational, public safety and transportation organizations, but are not available to individuals or commercial operations. There are very few local radio bands available.
