Local Community Radio Act

KLSN-LP is a Low Power FM Radio Station

As a result of the Radio Broadcasting Preservation Act of 2000, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) established Low Power FM (LPFM) as a new designated class of radio station. These stations are allowed to operate at up to 100 watts of power, compared to the minimum 100 watt requirement for commercial stations.

J&MC Quarterly Journal described LPFM as:

Radio Free Oakley

"... necessary to offset the growing consolidation of station ownership in the wake of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which removed caps on radio ownership, as well as the decline of locally produced radio programming."

After President Obama signed The Local Community Radio Act of 2010 into law on January 4, 2010, FCC chairman Julius Genachowski said,

"Low power FM stations are small, but they make a giant contribution to local community programming. This important law eliminates the unnecessary restrictions that kept these local stations off the air in cities and towns across the country."

LPFM stations are considered to be affordable compared to an average FM station. And it can be crucial for small communities in times of emergencies. A low power FM radio station can stay on the air even if the power goes out. Did you know that Low Power FM saved lives during the Katrina hurricane disaster.

A LPFM station can strengthen community identity, create diversity on-air, and open up opportunities for interested students. It gives a voice to schools and organizations to promote many service-related projects that help better local neighborhoods.
