Community Radio in India

Via Tides Center

Goal

To use the latest software and computer-based FM transmitters to reduce the cost of creating rural radio stations

This project will connect rural radio stations to the Internet by using new software and computer-based FM transmitters. The innovations will significantly reduce the cost of creating the stations in India - from an estimated $50,000 to $2,500. India is issuing a new round of community radio station licenses, so the proposal is timely. The effort will start by helping nonprofits already operating in India launch radio stations.
