Free Radio Berkeley offers TV transmission kit for sale

December 3, 2004

In mid-November, Free Radio Berkeley began offering a low-power television transmission kit for sale, priced at less than $1000.

The group’s foray into television broadcasting is certain to be unwelcome news to the FCC and NAB, which have attempted to thwart the group’s pirate radio activities.
