Frequency asked questions about the signal swap

"Why did you change frequencies?"
- our old transmitter was old (it was used in 1982 when we got it!) and dying
- our transmitter site rental fees were unsustainable (being raised by 900%!)
- this opportunity to change frequencies offered a solution that met our co-op's needs

"How does the station benefit from the new frequency?"
- new transmission equipment and back-up systems
- transmitter costs covered for 5 years
- 5 ad campaigns over 5 years
- financial support for the station which is being invested in projects that will increase the sustainability of the station

"How are you using the money that you got?"
- we consulted with members and other community organizations throughout 2011 in order to develop a plan
- our members wanted to make sure that 1) there was money left after 5 years and 2) the money was use to make the station more financially sustainable
- the money is NOT being used on operating expenses - that means we still need our members to keep the station running day-to-day!
- the money is being invested in projects that will help the station be more financially stable (e.g. new membership systems, implementing fundraising initiatives, etc.)
- we have already paid off our debt!
- the money helps but it is not a panacea - we are still member-owned and operated.  We cannot function without our members.

"How can I get involved in the station?"
- check out our website: www.coopradio.org
- come to a Station Orientation (3rd Tuesday of every month at 6:30pm)

"What is this station?"
- we are a community radio station
- we don't air commercials
- all of our programming is produced by volunteers
- check out www.coopradio.org for a listing of our 90 different programs

"Where's the Peak?"
- CKPK is now broadcasting at 102.7FM

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?
