Over the years, Farm Radio International has received many requests from groups seeking information on how to start their own community radio station. And while Farm Radio International’s core programming supports existing African radio organizations, we also wanted to assist these aspiring broadcasters. So Farm Radio volunteer Karina Barker developed a Community Radio Start-Up Information Guide, which is now available on the Farm Radio website: http://www.farmradio.org/english/partners/resources/radio-start-up.asp.
Even established radio organizations are sure to find useful information in this manual – which discusses how to get started, legal issues, funding options, things to think about when selecting equipment, ideas for managing your community radio station, and broadcasting tips. It also includes links to websites, publications and other resources that may be useful when starting up, and operating, a community radio station.
