Prometheus Radio Project Comes to Portland

Prometheus Radio: Sunday, Feb.1 @ Liberty Hall - 7 pm
Pete Tridish, media activist from the Prometheus Radio Project, will be in Portland to talk about the most recent skirmisheds in the battle for the airwaves. Just finished with putting a new Low pOwer radio station on the air for the Confederated tribes of the Umatilla in Eastern Oregon, he will be talking about some of the successful new community radio stations that have been built in the past year. For every successful low power applicant, there are dozens of groups that want to build stations that are still stuck in the process or not even allowed to apply. He will also talk about the upcoming lawsuit that Prometheus has filed against the FCC, which will decide the fate of dozens of multi-milliondollar media mergers that the major corporations are now pushing for. A techinical session will follow for those interested learning more about technical aspects of building community radio stations.
