& tell hackerspaces.org the news.
Congratulations Noisebridge Radioers!
You've had several successful meetings,
much was discussed,
& progress is well underway to get
the NB FCC Low Power FM broadcast station license in before its Nov 14
Now I'm gonna be movin on.
Back in February I posted to the NB amateur [= "love"] radio CQ list
that NB ought to have a radio station.
In August Norman Bradley (also a ham) alerted us that the FCC was about
to begin accepting applications,
the first time in decades in metropolitan areas.
Since then I have chosen to invest my time, in a personal overload
into this once in a lifetime opportunity,
to get the Noisebridge radio project ball rolling -
contributing the skills & knowledge I have, which many here don't (yet)
so that this project would hopefully acquire sufficient momentum to
become self sustaining.
I hope it worked -
cause I'm about to hit the door.
Now Radioers, leaders of NB,
& all etceterians who desire that
NB have as much success as possible,
hackers have as much success as possible,
& our wonderful San Francisco, Bay Area, California & global societies
have as much success as possible,
I'm now passing the ball on to you!
I knew from the beginning that one tiny little me wasn't gonna be able
either create a NB radio station, nor sustain one.
So I've tried to alert Noisebridgians to the possibilities & benefits,
with the hope that enough people will be sufficiently intrigued
so that the idea becomes a reality.
I hope that has happened.
I'm not going away,
but I am bowing out of most Noisebridge "The Bridge" radio activity.
I've got many other respnsibilities to attend to.
If this project is going to succeed,
it has now become _your_ responsibility.
The good news is, I believe you definitely have the capabilities
to make it a reality.
And I believe the unknown hackers, & unknown future hackers,
will thank you for it!
If it _is_ actually going to happen,
the most important thing that someone
who has _not_ done this before,
has got to do is make a personal commitment to:
1) getting the Tues 6-8PM weekly radio hacker meeting onto the calendar
on the main nb web page, &
2) sending a weekly meeting announcement to the NB--Discuss & Announce
so all hackers are refreshly reminded of the meeting,
& of their opportunity to contribute to radio, & social, hacking.
The other main thing is to immediately help Norman,
in anything he needs,
to enable him to get a proper, successful application in to the FCC by
its November 14th due date.
- Please note: Norman is a very busy guy, too.
I believe he is also going far out of his way,
cutting deep into his own personal responsibilities & resources,
to do the things only he at Noisebridge is able to do,
to get this project he believes is important to both Noisebridgians,
& hackers everywhere,
into the air.
[Please join me right now in giving Norman Bradley a big round of
Me: Clap clap clap!
Thanks, Norman! This project certainly wouldn't have had so much
progress without all your efforts.
I certainly couldn't have done it without you!
Now, I've got to get on to other important responsibilities,
lide helping Oaklland's SudoRoom get a radio application in,
& alerting the USA hacerspacces to their impending doom^h^h^h^h
opportunities to get their FCC applications in,
with only two weeks notice!
I'll have more to say, later.
It is now _YOUR_ responsibility to
_immediately_ get an announcement out
that everyone is invited to
Tonight's 6-8PM Noisebridge FM broadcast Radio meeting.
Best wishes to all.
And, as we say in the amateur radio community,
73 to everyone.
