Last weekend was a work weekend for the station at their new location.
I was working with volunteers cleaning up and repairing the facility.
I was also getting a feel for where a tower might go to microwave their signal. I advised them on sound proofing of the studio and offices. I worked with them on budget concerns for the build out, suggesting they use some of the existing doors just reconfigured.
I am doing additional research on sound proofing. I attended the Monday morning staff meeting and suggested they look at merging with the somewhat defunct sarasota.indymedia.org website. It could serve their purpose well for developing a citizen reporter corp. and expand their web presence.
Oh, I should mention I ran into a City Council member at a community meeting (citizens advocating for a city power utility company) and mentioned the opportunity of the station being the broadband provider for the downtown and the poorer barrios to the north and he said get me the proposal. Whoa.. now I get to get working.
