It won't take much for this station to be profitable.  It's simply a  
simulcast of programming being beamed to dozens of affiliates  
nationwide.  There's little to no promotion outside of word of mouth  
in church circles. The only major expenses EMF will have is the  
electric bill and occasional transmitter maintenance.  If a small  
percentage of their local audience ponies up a few bucks  
occasionally, it should cover expenses.  I'm sure that some EMF  
stations lose money while others make quite a bit, but balanced out  
across their entire network they are most likely making a respectable  
profit, something that most commercial stations (religious or  
otherwise) can't say right now.
