We need your help supporting the build-out of our FM hardware! Within the next week we need you to write a letter to the FCC to express your enthusiasm for our endeavor in a profound way.

On Feb 22, we will be applying for a BIG federal grant - one which could potentially cover 75% of our costs for purchasing equipment such as a transmitter, antenna and production grade studio gear. Overall such costs could run between $300,000 and $400,000, so the impact of this grant request is obviously monumental.

Please consider contributing to this fundamental component of our grant proposal. Letters should "document community support for and interest in the services the new facility would provide" - in other words, how would Boise Community Radio change your life and OUR community!

A few other specifics about how where/when to submit you letter:

- Compose on a letterhead, if you have one
- Addressed (but not mailed) to [NTIA/PTFP Room H-4812, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington DC 20230]
- Salutation should read "Members of Peer Review Panel"
- MAIL to Boise Community Radio, 1020 W. Main St #200, Boise ID 83702
- We'd like to receive all letters by Friday Feb 15.
- Email versions (pdf, word) are fine (to: jabrams at

We'd LOVE to receive a letter from you - it's vitally important. You are encouraged to ask friends and colleagues to provide their support letters, as well. Please let me know if you have any questions.
