Is God Calling you to Start an EWTN radio affiliate?

I recently heard the ad, as I'm sure many of you have, on EWTN, on to apply for an FCC license to begin a not-for-profit FM radio station affiliate of EWTN in your area. I have just contacted the Catholic Radio Association , and there may be, upon further investigation, a possibility of an FM affiliate in my area.
My only qualification is zeal for spreading the Gospel, and a husband who is on board with this. We have no funds to spare, but we do have many wonderful Catholic friends who are excited about the opportunity to pierce the darkness with the light of EWTN radio. If God wants to use us to bring His Eternal Word to His people, we figure, He's got the money (that was the line both Mothers used; Teresa and Angelica, and look what they accomplished from nothing!)

I want you to pray for this endeavor, what really excites me is, not only could we broadcast the wonderful programming of EWTN in English 24/7, but also in Spanish, as my husband and I are both fluent. Double the results for the same investment. Only God can make this happen, so pray that we listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Oh, and, since it would be hard to be less qualified than we are to begin a radio station, why don't you go to their website, and ask the Catholic Radio Association if your area qualifies as well?

I was so happy when I saw Relevant Radio had bought WLIE 540 AM. This Catholic radio network is based in Pittsburgh and I listen to it when visiting relatives there. Unfortunately, Relevant Radio seems to be having some trouble right now and WLIE is still a business format. I have no idea when or if Relevant Radio will be on 540 AM but I am still hoping and praying. Not sure if you get 540 out east, but I read that Relevant Radio would apply to expand the station's reach.

Yes, I was happy too about this, the more the merrier, as they say, however out in God's country, where I live, two towns west of Westhampton, we get very few stations. Perhaps that's why there is the possibility of getting another FM station here. If this were true, and we could have EWTN radio 24/7, then what else do we need?
