As of 12/4/2016 the servers are now in their new homes, the web server in Fremont and the archive server emma in Santa Cruz. Some of the pre-2004 archive programs are not yet online but will be soon. Your support is essential if the service is to continue, there are bandwidth bills to pay every month and failing disk drives to replace. Volunteers do the work, but disk drives and bandwidth are not free. Click on this bar to contribute, even a dollar helps.

The FCC is about to let AM radio stations get on FM by opening up translator stations to save the AM band.
Produced for Dec. 25, 2015, but can air a few days later. No holiday references.
The Communications Law Blog reports about the deadlines for commercial AM radio stations to file for an FM translator, putting their signal on both formats. This is the main part of the Federal Communications Commission's plan to save AM radio, by putting it on FM radio. AM licensees can acquire and relocate translator stations up to 250 miles away from their current studio. The first modification window is for licensees or permittees of Class C or D AM stations, and is from January 29 to July 28, 2016. Then any AM station is eligible in the second window, July 29 to October 31, 2016. More information about the FCC's AM plan is at https://www.fcc.gov/media/radio/am-revitalization
