Better Radio Gets a Home at 88.5 FM!

A beautiful thing: Better Radio's call number and construction permit!
betterArts was today notified that its newest project, Better Radio, has been assigned a station number and granted a construction permit!

From this date, the non-profits arts and cultural outreach organization has 18 months to construct its tower and begin transmitting from the low-power station, 88.5 FM. In addition to broadcasting via this station, Better Radio will be shared internationally through podcasts via betterArts' website and blog posts at In order for the tower, transmitter, and all other associated broadcast equipment to be realized for this project, betterArts is set to launch a fundraising campaign in order to acquire all necessary items and have start-up capital for broadcasting.

Better Radio has already created partnerships with Indian River High School, students from Sackets Central, several professional musicians living in the region, Best Buy, and volunteers throughout the North Country and beyond who are interested in sharing their time, energy, and expertise with the project.
