Low Power to the People

In 2000, the Federal Communications Commission created low-power FM radio service in an effort to give voice to local communities.  Free licenses were approved for noncommercial LPFM radio stations with a 100-watt signal (the power of a light bulb!) and service range in a 3.5-mile radius.  By 2006, the FCC had issued about 750 such licenses nationwide in mostly rural areas, including at least three in the northern part of the Bay Area.
