PSE, A BIG ASSIST WITH STATION RAISING
Thank you to Puget Sound Energy for supporting Goldendale Community Radio. A PSE Foundation grant for start-up equipmentwas awarded to Community Enrichment for Klickitat County, the LPFM radio station license applicant, in July 2015. PSE also generously procured the FCC required Emergency Broadcast System unit and other essential items for the new low-power FMstation. Technical expertise and assistance provided by PSE during station buildingand antenna-raising was invaluable help for Goldendale Community Radio in August.Thank you to everyone involved, and to PSE in its entirety for supporting public radio in Goldendale.

SOME NOT SO LIGHT READING FOR LPFM FANS
Low Power FM Broadcast Stations have rules and regulations of their own found in Subpart G of the FCC’s Broadcast Rules in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Subpart H contains Rules Applicable to All Broadcast Stations, including LPFMs. You may want to take notes as there will be a test! Just no one knows for sure where or when! - https://transition.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/amfmrule.html#LPFM

KVGD-LP COMMUNITY RADIO MEMBER OF THE MONTH
KVGD-LP Community Radio Member of the Month recipient is Joan Stone who in addition to generous financial support, has contributed content. Joan is the author of a series of gardening essays which we have pre-recorded for future broadcast. Cailynn Stone, Joan’s granddaughter, has become involved on the talent side of the microphone. Cailynn has recorded garden essays and Joan’s writings that appear in Bluelight to Pucker Huddle:Discovering Klickitat County (Friends of Goldendale Library, 2005). These will be heard in future episodes of the new radio show series based on the original book.

KVGD-LP NEWS TEAM IN ACTION - KVGD-LP News Team members are jumping in feet first. Bob Yoesle, Science reporter, attended a recent Goldendale City Council meeting to record a presentation by Anna Graham of Friends of Goldendale Observatory. Her presentation was on protecting dark skies through enactment of a revised lighting ordinance.
