                   FCC Authorizes Developmental Testing of LPDS Concepts in New York City


Following nine years of development, FreePage Corporation

received (in late 2002) authority from the FCC to begin

Developmental testing of its proposed new

Radio Narrowcast Service utilizing 150 MHz channels it 

owns in New York City.

EXCITING NEWS!! 

LPDS is now widely available in Australia.

Over 100 ethnic broadcasters are now in operation

in the 150-172 MHz band providing specialized programming to

audiences throughout the continent. Some stations have websites.

This new service should be regarded as "Narrowcasting"

as it is designed to address the need of reaching

small targeted audiences economically.

 

IN MANY CASES LPDS PROVIDES A VIABLE

ALTERNATIVE TO THE USE OF FM-SCA CHANNELS

BECAUSE FCC RULES PERMIT ADDITIONAL

FILL-IN CO-CHANNEL TRANSMITTERS TO PROVIDE

BETTER COVERAGE. RECEIVERS COST LESS, TOO.

 

As developed by LPDS, signals could either "be in the clear",

digitized or otherwise encrypted, and could even be addressable

to reach only certain receivers, for example, paid subscribers.

 

When fully deployed, utilizing spectrum already owned by LPDS,

this service would provide twenty-eight separate program feeds 

reaching over 14 MILLION potential listeners within twenty miles

of the Empire State Building 

See the official FCC coverage map below.

 

Programming can be transmitted in Stereo or Mono.

 

The LPDS team has worked diligently to overcome hurdles of

every type, from copyright and performance issues, to music

licensing, interference and other technical problems 

so as to bring LPDS to fruition.

 

Suggested uses include (but not limited to):

  • Live sports broadcasts
  • Translators for out-of-region broadcasters
  • "Fill-in" transmitters for AM stations (in-building penetration)
  • Special Events broadcasts
  • Foreign-language programming
  • Religious services and instruction
  • Business news
  • Broadcasts of town meetings
  • Emergency broadcasts
  • Book readings for the Blind
  • Programming for the Handicapped
  • Language instruction (ESL and other)
  • Wireless simulcasts for Internet Radio
  • Encrypted gambling information

 

 

Pocket receivers of various types are already available "off-the-shelf"

to receive LPDS "in-the-clear" broadcasts. Any "police scanner" will

also receive our test broadcasts without modification.

Please contact our Technical Department to receive exact

frequency programming instructions.
