Welcome to Free Radio at 103.1 A Free Speech voice in the Arcadia Crossing community. With a Free Speech mission to provide our community with information, and a wide range of music, not available from commercial or public broadcasting.

This micro station is helping to to create an ever growing micropower broadcasting movement to liberate the airwaves and break the corporate broadcast media's stranglehold on the free flow of news, information, ideas, cultural and artistic creativity. 

This movement, by creating an ungovernable situation for the FCC, forced this regulatory body to establish a very limited low power FM broadcast service (LPFM). Viewed by many within the micropower community as a form of damage control and a divide and conquer strategy,

LPFM service only allows the establishment of low power stations in rural communities, and not in the inter cites, due to overly stringent channel spacing requirements, placed upon the LPFM broadcaster. 

Even given the limited nature of LPFM it was immediately opposed by both the National Association of Broadcasters and National Public Radio.

As a result of intense lobbying efforts by both these organizations Congress passed a bill that severely curtailed an already limited service.

Following the example of Free Radio Berkeley in California, hundreds of micropower broadcast stations have taken to the air across the United States and in other countries as well.

Current FCC regulations mandate a minimum broadcast power of 100 watts for non-LPFM stations and require such a high cost of entry so that only the rich and well endowed can have a voice.

Micropower broadcasting is helping to restore grassroots democracy, bringing back the concept of open and free civic discourse among all citizens, regardless of ones financial status..

Further, it is a direct challenge to a broadcast
system based entirely on wealth. and greed

A micropower FM broadcast station with a coverage radius of 12-15 miles can be put on the air for a cost ranging from $1000-$2000.
