What's the Frequency?

All FM radio stations are on odd-numbered frequencies, between 87.9 and 107.9FM

Ø By FCC rules, a station can be no closer to another station than the second-adjacent slot. Ideally, this would allow for as many as 16 new frequencies on the Austin dial.

O Under the new rules, however, microradio stations will have to be no closer than the third-adjacent slot, leaving only two open frequencies on Austin's FM dial.

Austin currently has a "pirate" microradio station operating in a second-adjacent slot at 97.1, which would not be allowed under the new rules.

    Microradio wins FCC approval, but advocates of the low-wattage stations say the rules for winning a license will prohibit most stations and silence the microradio community's radical voice.
