37. Micro Radio Stations

Micro radio stations should be allowed anywhere as long as they don’t interfere with any existing stations or with any other existing legal uses of those frequencies in that area.

Furthermore, to provide an educational training ground that allows mistakes to be made and views to be developed, these micro radio stations should be largely exempted from most of the penalties and fines associated with the broadcasting of inaccurate information and other things that would bring about fines if done on other, more ‘professional’ and larger-scale media forms (see point #15. Public Policing of Published Materials). The public should be encouraged to participate in micro radio formats by making speeches and doing other things that both allow them to develop their public speaking skills and speak their mind. Educators could use micro radio and micro TV (if possible) stations to have their students practice various skills.
