What is Low Power FM?
Low Power FM (LPFM) stations are broadcast entities licensed by the FCC and are for non-commercial, non-profit community-based organizations. Since media corporations are concentrating broadcast power in fewer and fewer hands, we feel the future of independent radio serving local communities lies with LPFMs, such as KAPY Valley 103.1 Community Radio.
