Looks like a new community radio station is in the works for Aurora.
Based on what I read in the Aurora Banner, Radio Aurora shares the vision I had when starting a station in Stouffville.
WhiStle Radio has received two Ontario Trillium Grants to purchase equipment. Each grant application had a clause that basically stipulates that the equipment will be donated to another, similar, not-for-profit organization if WhiStle Radio stops broadcasting. I know because I wrote the grant applications and I wrote the clauses.
WhiStle Radio has lost its’ broadcasting frequency. No steps that I’m aware of have been taken to find a way to stay on the air.
Radio Aurora should be asked if they want the equipment. It is the right thing to do.
