Welcome to the June edition of the Prometheus Radio Broadcast! So far, it has been a triumphant month for low power radio, so grab your party hats and get ready to celebrate good news. This newsletter also offers the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and dig into new issues of regulatory policy, come out to fun events, and much more.

Welcome to the Prometheus Radio Broadcast !

You are listening to the Prometheus Radio Broadcast brought to you live from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On today's show we will feature .....

Wait! Hold up! This isn't a radio broadcast! This is just an e-mail.

While all of that is true, this is the Prometheus Radio Project's newest mode of broadcast. As many of you know, we have helped hundreds of groups start their own radio stations over the years, yet we ourselves do not have our own radio station. Therefore, we plan to use this broadcast newsletter to let you know what's going on in the Prometheus world. As a subscriber to this broadcast you will receive an email once or twice a month letting you know what's happening in radio policy land, what new stations just went on the air, what exciting station handbooks we have released, and so on.

Just like any normal radio broadcast feel free to turn us off by following the unsubscribe options below. Also, you can help us expand our broadcast signal by forwarding this to your friends and recommending that they subscribe.

Thanks for all of your support of the years and thanks for tuning in to the first edition of the new Prometheus Radio Broadcast!

FCC Releases Next Batch of Grantable Applications

The FCC has released its list of "apparently grantable" applications for West Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, The Virgin Islands, and North Dakota. These are applications that have undergone a preliminary technical review. There is a thirty day window for petitions to deny, and in a few months the construction permits will come dripping out one by one, like droplets of ice cream falling off the cone on a hot summer's day. If you are on this list: congratulations! It is a big step forward. But remember it can still take years for the actual permit to come out. The list is available at this site:
