Calling All Stations!
Is there anybody out there willing to help us put together a digital 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 and hoping for 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 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? 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.
* CRF (CryptoRights Foundation) is the nonprofit behind the CAVERN project and it’s parent, Project VERN (Volunteer Emergency Radio Network), which is part of the Harmless Little Project (Human Rights Technology R&D) effort.
