The Londonderry (NH)Times, a free weekly paper, has an article this week
on the new Radio Derry AM 1700.  Owned and operated by Rick Ganley, who
has been professionally involved in radio since 1990, according to the

The article is written in the present tense, as if the station is already
on the air.  The article goes on to say that the station will offer
commuters quick segments of local news, weather as well as state and
national headlines. The programming will be offered in a continuous stream
and will be updated several times a day, the article continues.

The owner states he does not need a license, as the FCC allows low power
stations to operate without a license. 

The owner is actively seeking local businesses for advertising hoping to
make the station self supporting.

All I can say is good luck transmitting legally to those who come within a
few blocks of your flea powered station. Or is it flea powered? What's a
misplaced decimal point or two when you're talking about power?
