Low power radio continues to be a useful tool for Sea Grant Extension to reach a large audience traveling through a particular geographic location. Sea Grant Radio continues to broadcast messages about research pollution, septic systems, wildlife, marine research projects, the recruitment of volunteers and related events; as well as announcements about educational events and opportunities.
A portion of Sea Grant Radio listeners responded to online surveys and indicated an interest in learning more about wildlife, research, events and educational opportunities. There is some evidence that radio listeners are attending events and facilities they hear about on the radio. Sea Grant Radio continues to be viewed as an attractive resource for partner educational agencies.
One of the best outcomes from the Sea Grant program is the wealth of information about the real-world use of low power radio. Please to be enjoying the excellent publications and web pages listed below:
