Is there anybody out there willing to help us put together a radio station in Cobb, operated 24/7 by teams of young people?
CRF* is now starting (1Q2021) to develop a partnership (WIP) with another small local nonprofit which includes the goal of putting “RadioCobb“online and on the airwaves from a location in Cobb (near the Post Office) and possibly getting some kind of support from Lake County. It will be connected to the Cobb Area Volunteer Emergency Radio Network, which will be able to interrupt the radio station’s broadcast with brief CAVERN emergency alerts (in case of fire) as well as send out a “siren tone” over the airwaves in case of a major disaster or evacuation order.
We need feedback from the Cobb Area community.Would you please take 2 minutes to let us know a few quick things using the handy form below? We really need a few radio-savvy local people to help us launch this public information and safety service that gives young people the opportunity to serve the community both creatively and with an important purpose.

CAVERN’s organizers were live on the air with radio host Ben Weiss on public radio station KPFZ, chatting about the CAVERN project and its roots, RF radio topics, organizing your community to be prepared for emergencies and the future convergence of software-defined radio (SDR) and terrestrial radio mesh networks, including the mothership VERN project’s development happening at a small nonprofit tech thinktank right here in Lake County.
