Based on experience gained from construction and operation of other Radio 74 affiliate stations, we expect construction cost to range from $32,000 to $40,000, with yearly operating expenses anticipated at approximately $4,000.  The FCC permit, which was issued April 9, 2008, expires on April 8, 2011.  Therefore, we need to act quickly.
