Haven't heard much. I heard updates on indymedia stopped before the meeting finished. Very curious what happened but nothing on KBOO's website so far.

Hadiran Michee is taking the board to the woodshed over the FCC licence


1. Sending a FCC document related to Board turn-over and a petition to deny one of our broadcasting licences based on that turn-over.

Document name: DA-11-1605A1
From: http://www.fcc.gov/document/kboo-foundation

The basis of the petition to deny: a claim that there was a greater than 50 percent change in KBOO's governing board which is generally considered a "major change" prohibited by Section 73.3573 of the Commission's Rules.

2. Sending a KBOO document with the Board Member election and appointment history. Three new Board members elected in September: Jeff Kipilman, John Mackey, Damon Isiah Turner. Three new Board members appointed in June. That is a 50% change in KBOO's governing board. Our current license renewal can be challenged on these grounds.

The solution to this long history of instability on the Board? Do an active recruitment from outside of the KBOO community of stable, skilled and committed people who can represent segments of the unserved and underserved communities we seek to serve. It will be a hard sell given our current situation, but it must be attempted. The benefits of such a Board are many. The problems resulting from the status quo could be fatal.

This is the basis of my motion to the Board to request the Nomination Committee to do all that is required of it by the by-laws. Actually, we need to do all that, and more. I can provide many resources needed for Board recruitment. It involves more than recording a spot, going to KBOO special events and putting up a notice on our web page."
