RedChesterfield Posted February 11, 2013 Share Posted February 11, 2013 Folks! I'm hoping for some shared knowledge and maybe a little insight into the realities of radio broadcasting! I'm absolutely enamoured with the idea of an FM startup - have been for years - and I want to start piecing things together. Or at least look to see if it's feasible. I've been looking to go back to school, and I'm weighing the benefits of either an electronics or broadcast engineering program. I know the technicalities of that kind of work are what I'm after, and with broadcasting I think there also exists the expressive, and human, side of work I want to pursue. Allow me to rattle off some questions, to perhaps better narrow this search for info.What are the equipment basics, to broadcast in FM? Generalized costs? What are the red-tape requirements to broadcast in Canada? What kind of content can you air? How well-defined do you have to make a station? How do you cover yourself for the content you air? Who do you pay, and how much? Where do I look for reliable equipment? What are trusted brands? Anything at all you want to pitch in with regards to the industry will be super appreciated. It's a lofty ambition right now, but I'm rising to it. Thanks in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
