A Bahá’í-Inspired Radio Station in Arizona: Volunteers and Equipment Needed
Desert Rose Bahá’í Institute is developing a Bahá’í radio station in Arizona and is searching for people who might be interested in living in sunny Arizona (a great place for retirement) and volunteering at the radio station.
Among the many skills and equipment needed are these:
- Volunteers with experience in radio and broadcasting.
- Volunteers with experience in program development, indigenous peoples, community affairs, and electrical engineering.
- Volunteers with an interest in radio (training can be provided).
- Donated broadcasting equipment.
- Donated portable buildings.
If you are interested in relocating to Arizona, volunteering, or donating equipment, contact the DRBI Management Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new radio station will be a low-power FM station serving farming, Hispanic, and indigenous communities residing near Casa Grande, Arizona, located midway between Tucson and Phoenix. The Desert Rose Bahá’í Institute has received initial FCC licensing for tower construction. Operation is planned to begin in January 2016.
Over the years a number of retired individuals, Bahá’ís and friends of Bahá’ís, have settled in the nearby area to assist the school. Founded twenty years ago as a Bahá’í-inspired charitable and educational non-profit 501(c)3, Desert Rose Bahá’í Institute was the dream of the Hand of the Cause of God Mr. William Sears and his wife to help build a better world. The Institute’s radio station will provide greater opportunities to deliver community information, health education, and a spiritual perspective to an underserved rural population.
