Saint James College Seminary and its
parent organization, the interfaith Love
Church Worldwide, offer practical training
as to how to build your own small radio
station.

If you have been thinking of
buying an
existing station, you should be aware that
the average "low-end" commercial
broadcasting station will typically cost
from several hundred thousands of dollars
to several million dollars.  And, the chances
of finding one for sale in your community
are slight.

New low power fm radio stations are
licensed by the FCC but only during
certain "application windows" spaced years
apart.  And, it is common for dozens of
applicants to ask the FCC for the same
frequency you are requesting.  You may
very well be left behind if the government
awards your hoped-for frequency to
someone else.

The process can be prohibitively expensive
and can involve years of waiting for a "go-
no go" decision.

There is an
alternative,
however:
 A low-
power transmitter
that serves a
small community
 OR we can help you
get an Internet PODCAST up and
running quickly and inexpensively
!

Our not-for-profit educational
program can teach you how to
conceptualize your station, purchase
equipment, locate a suitable transmitter
site...and
begin broadcasting in a
month's time ...or less
!

Think about the days when we used tape recorders.  You could tape a speech
... or a political commentary ... or, say, a sermon, and then pass it along for
someone else to listen to it later.

Sometimes these would be broadcast over television or radio.  At other times
they might be sent to friends or relatives who could play the tape back and
listen to your words.

There is a church in our school's community where
the pastor records his
Sunday sermons on CDs
and sends them through the U.S. Mail to
congregants who are shut-in...or who have moved away and now live in other
areas of the country.   (Some of you are young enough that you barely know
what a CD even is!)

Today, you can record a message, and attach it to an email, put a link
on your website, or arrange for a special "Podcast Portal" to host it for
you.

Here are two very simple further examples of podcasts...one a Sunday sermon
... and one dealing with a medical topic.
