As of today (11/5/03), they are still broadcasting on
107.9.  A representative of the station stated at last
night's Brattleboro Selectboard meeting that they
would continue to operate until one of two things

A. The FCC confiscates their equipment, or

B. One of the two pending LPFM applications for
Brattleboro are granted by the FCC, at which time rfb
members would be "absorbed" by the new station.
