Start a Radio Station in the USA
If you plan to start a radio station in the USA, we can undertake turnkey projects and set up a radio station for you in less than two months time. (subject to obtaining approvals and other extraneous factors)
Please be informed that broadcasting even at very low power of 0.5 watt or less requires a license in any part of the U.S.A. Unlicensed broadcast is illegal and attracts severe penalties here.
Unlicensed operation in U.S.A is not permitted beyond a broadcast radius of approximately 200 feet. Here, FM broadcast is allowed in the frequency range of 88.1 MHz to 107.9 MHz.(FM commercial stations – 92.1 MHz to 107.9 MHz while non commercial radio stations are granted frequencies in the range of 88.1 MHz to 92 MHz), and the AM band operates in the frequency range of 1600 to 1700 kHz.
License is generally granted if there are vacant frequencies available in the area and all the application criteria are met. The license application form can be obtained from:
Federal Communications Commission
Forms Distribution Center
2803 52nd Avenue
Hyattsville, MD 20817
subject to payment of requisite filing fees at the time of submission of the license application form.
