WIDE-LP is an FCC licensed all volunteer low power FM radio station in Madison Wisconsin. We completed 2 weeks of test broadcasting with a rented transmitter in October 2007 and returned to the air from a new transmitter location in October 2008. We are working out the bugs while broadcasting at half power. We need your ideas and support. Please visit http://citywidelpfm.org/ to see how you can contribute.
