Community Radio Studio Remodeled, Hope for New FM Station Soon

While “The Voice” radio producers eagerly await word on Access Sacramento’s application with the FCC for approval to launch a new Low-Power FM radio station in midtown, their anticipation for even quicker improvements has already come true.

Radio Coordinator Shane Carpenter has completed ordering equipment for a full-remodel of Studio Two, with additional enhancements to upgrade elements of Studio One as well.

The older of Access Sacramento’s two studios, Studio Two, will receive a new audio mixer (Audioarts R55E) identical to the board used in Studio One.  New speakers and computer equipment will also be installed to assist radio programmers with creating live and recorded programs for use on the cable channels and Internet.

LPFM Application

As for the Low-Power FM radio station application, Access Sacramento is the only applicant for an open frequency at 96.5 FM.  Twelve other non-profit organizations have applied for six other frequencies in the Sacramento area. 

The FCC is reviewing all of the applications and after they are officially “Accepted for Filing” there will be a 30-day review and comment period before the FCC will issue permission granting a construction permit.
