EXPERIMENTAL BROADCASTING
Home made radio can be the best, so why wait?  Whether it's FCC Part 15 legal AM or FM broadcast, or a low bandwidth, peer to peer internet radio station, you can start your own  operation following the guides you will find here.  
It's not Pirate Radio - this site is dedicated to serving those hobbyists who are willing to accept less range in exchange for peace of mind. There are already many pirate sites, but few sites dedicated exclusively to legal, experimental broadcasting.
What Goes On Here?
This web site will give visitors a quick overview of several methods anyone can use to start their own home made, experimental broadcast operation.  On the air, or over the internet, there are several ways that almost anyone can start a home made radio station.  Read the information, visit the links, and get into it!
