Experience

Former owner KIAE(FM) Aurora, NE 1980-85, (built from scratch and sold station in '85) and former owner/operator K61CU-TV Lincoln, NE 1990-95,  (performing the initial engineering work, to the actual construction and operation). 

Applicant for several FM stations from 1983-87. (sold out to competing applicants in Kearney, NE, Aspen, CO, Laramie, WYO, Red Lodge, MT, Kingman, KN, etc) .

Wrote a book on low power FM stations, for aspiring owners, in 2002.  Sold around 50 copies to applicants on file, with a very limited direct mail campaign.


Liberty Broadcasting of Nebraska, Inc.
K61CU-TV Lincoln, NE. ch. 61. March 1990. 810 watts at 150ft, 400 watts at 300ft, then 6KW at 250ft. Intercity relay microwave 13,012.5 mhz  (A federally licensed low power, over-the-air TV station Ch. 61).

 Low powers now have regular type call letters like K J J J. The station broadcast music videos to start with, mainly aimed at the Univ of NE students who lived on campus. The University hadn't allowed Cablevision onto the campus, so the kids only had the major networks, 1 independent station (KPTM) and 61TV. (No Dish or Directv back then.) Programming started to include live sports feeds (football/basketball), classic movies, etc. An independent survey found that Ch. 61 had as many viewers as the #1 radio station had listeners. most times of the day. Back then, Nielsen refused to even list low powers, even if they had a sizable audience. The reason was never explained. They now do carry them, if they qualify with a large enough audience.

 Subject: The end of net neutrality?   Not if we do something about it.

The Federal Communications Commission is inviting public comments about proposed rules that would gut net neutrality and hand over the internet to big cable companies like Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon. This is a really important issue to keep the internet open, healthy and free from corporate control. I just submitted a comment to the FCC -- I hope you will too!
