Re: Covering the city council

Hmm - TV 3 was wondering the same thing, until they were notified that the
closest available freq. was Fall River.

Kinda took the wind out of their sails...for now.  They're always working on
something to better promote their access stations.

One would think, that since public access stations are generally
non-commercial (seperating public access from local origination access
stations) that if an access station had the means to do so, they could apply
for an LPFM license.

Could prove interesting...TV and radio once again working together to serve
a community?  Who woulda thunk?
