Tell them you want local radio
May 16 2008, 1:13 PM
Since San Juan Island Community Radio’s construction permit application was held up, due to possible interference with Canadian broadcasting by some 1,500 yards, we have contracted with an FCC-approved broadcast engineer to finish our application, which is now on file with the FCC for public inspection.
The changes in our application include a much more expensive tunable antenna than originally planned, several baffles and deflectors (ferrite cores and the like spaced on our antenna), to adjust our transmissions within international regulations. Our first funding need is to pay this engineer a total of $3,600 for services already rendered, as the re-application had to be filed by May 2.
While we have pledges and interest in our community radio station, we have held off asking for actual funds because all of the above — “possible interference ...” and “finish our application ...” are virtual, or computer-held, events, with FCC computers using “modeled contours” to look for interference, while our engineer made other computer “modeled contours” back at them, the meter running merrily all the while.

High school team members will be on hand to serve and answer any questions that you may have about the auction items or about the team. All the money raised will go toward travel expenses, gas and off-island regattas.
