The Brattleboro Reformer published an editorial in support of that community’s unlicensed FM station–which was . RFB returned to the air last week after receiving 2000 signatures from local citizens supporting the station along with donations.
The editorial is downright radical compared to most newspapers:
“The Radio Broadcasting Preservation Act of 2000 contains provisions that would prevent the FCC from considering applications from organizations who had previously been unlicensed broadcasters. Radio free brattleboro, therefore, has little choice but to either allow itself to be muzzled, or take its mandate from the people who own the airwaves. It has made the right choice, and its 10-watt signal today sends the message loud and clear.”
Kudos to the people of Brattleboro!
