“Is Low Power FM Finally finding its Voice?”

April 16, 2001

In the Mountain Empire communities of Potrero, Campo and Morena Village, California, local community news is distributed by word-of-mouth and through information placed on post office bulletin boards. There are no daily newspapers, local radio or TV stations in this rural mountainous part of southeast San Diego County, along the border of the United States and Mexico. But soon, residents of the Mountain Empire region — and hundreds of communities like it — will be able to exchange information and keep informed through their very own radio station.
