LPFM For Houston Displaced On Air

KAMP 95.3 began test broadcasts late Monday and will officially go on the air today. It plans to be a place where the displaced can relate their experiences directly, as well as share information with each other. The FCC approved a minor amendment to special 90-day authorization which allows the station to broadcast from a trailer in the Houston Astrodome parking lot.
No reaction from the local authorities, apparently still too busy pissing on administrative trees to care. Hopefully they will see the utility of such a station in action. As they plan to try and disperse the displaced in the near future, though, it’s unclear just what kind of run KAMP will have.
In related news, there may be an effort underway to utilize microradio as a way to reach out to those holding their ground in New Orleans during the draining and dry-out.
