Community Radio National Call-In Day – July 20th

Join people from across the country to tell Congress to open up the airwaves for more community media!!!

TAKE ACTION – Tell your Congressional Representative to support HR 1147

1. Look up your Congressional Representative at

2. Find out if they have already supported the Local Community Radio Act.
See a list of cosponsors at and search for Bill number HR 1147.

3. Call the Congressional Switchboard at: (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Representative’s office.

If your representative is not a cosponsor tell he/she to support expanding Low Power FM all across the country and cosponsor the bill.

If your representative is a cosponsor ask him/her to reach out to Congressional Leadership to let them know that this is an important priority around the country.


In 2000, the FCC established Low Power FM radio service and the same year Congress acted to limit LPFM, pending the results of an interference study. This study was released in 2003, after an expenditure of $2.2 million in taxpayer dollars, and proved that LPFM would not provide interference to existing stations. There are currently over 800 LPFM stations operated by schools, churches, civic groups, and other nonprofit organizations across the country. However, it’s time, as the authors of this study and the FCC recommended, to expand LPFM to its intended service parameters. The Local Community Radio Act (HR 1147/S592) would expand Low Power FM radio stations and open the airwaves

Millionaires decline in Oregon, U.S. – Portland Business Journal:.

Oregon boasts 61,621 households with a net worth of more than $1 million, the 25th-most in the country.

About 4.12 percent of the state’s 1.495 million households have net worths of $1 million or more, Phoenix Marketing International researchers found. The top five states are Hawaii, Maryland, New Jersey, Connecticut and Virginia.

In Oregon, as in the rest of the country, the number of millionaires is declining.

In 2007, 4.88 percent of state households reported net worths of $1 million or more. That dropped to 4.5 percent last year.

David Thompson, managing director of the Phoenix Affluent Market group, said in a prepared statement: “Overall, the market downturn has taken its toll on the ranks of millionaires in most states.”

Phoenix Marketing, based in Rhinebeck, N.Y., reports a 14 percent decline in the number of U.S. millionaires over the last two years.

The bottom three slots this year go to West Virginia, Arkansas and Mississippi. In the last-place state, Mississippi, 3.06 percent of households have net worths of $1 million or more.
