The last two posts only reinforce my decision and lack of desire to apply for a LPFM station!
I don’t want to get into the politics of getting a board together. Sometimes you can get a good group of people together, but often times it never works that way … especially after what I like to call “The Honeymoon Phase.”
I’ve dealt with — and know people who have dealt with — stations that have been run by boards. It’s not pretty. Often times, you’re having to deal with people who want to “take charge” (which is not necessarily a bad thing to have go-getters) and get their feathers ruffled if you don’t do things THEIR way. It really doesn’t matter if it’s a station run by a university, or a non-profit station run by a religious organization. I’ve experienced both scenarios.
I’ll stick with the part 15 route. Yes, it’s a sacrifice in power and the range of your signal, but I’d trade that for the hell I’d have to go through when putting together a board of trustees for a LPFM station.
But if only I could have just a wee bit more power! Oh, well. This will be a more interesting, fun and challenging endeavor!
