If your station is not licensed for broadcast by the FCC, there is a rare opportunity to file for an FCC application coming this October. The FCC has announced a limited time (window) of opportunity to apply for an LPFM license which would allow you to operate with 100 watts or less of power to cover a limited area. This is a fantastic opportunity for your station if you are not currently licensed.
To read the word from the FCC, see http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/low-power-fm-broadcast-radio-stations-lpfm. In short, you need to file the application by 6:00 pm EDT on October 29, 2013.
