Crystal Lake Radio 88.1 FM as of 06/Oct/2020 -- The CAMPGROUND ARE OPEN

There is the possibility that a micro power radio station will be operated near the Visitor Center which will provide repeated information about fire hazards, bear difficulties, and other issues that may change from day to day.

The radio station that's being considered would operate at micro power which would be just enough to cover the parking lot and surrounding campgrounds though with emergency capabilities of 10 watts that would allow for 4 to 5 miles of coverage for such things as fire evacuations and such.

The cost of the transmitter package, cable, antenna, and power supply is around $600 and that has not yet been acquired. A funding effort may be started to get the funds and then the rules for local, micro power operation must be followed to allow the transmitter tighly local coverage.

For this to be successful, signs will need to be created by the Trailbuilders informing people of the frequency to tune their radios to, and a recording device that plays a looped tape will need to be acquired.

One of the volunteers who keeps the area clean of trash and repairs trails may look in to acquiring funding for installing a micro-power radio transmitter, and signs informing people where they can turn on their AM radio dial will be posted.
