    the results are a little different: we have two groups that are sharing a broadcast frequency; one transmits for two hours a day, the other for five hours a day, both broadcast programming from Pacifica.  They are in a dispute with each other about the use of the frequency, hence the restricted hours of operation.  Hopefully that will change soon.  And yes, some churches will get LPFM licenses, but I think our experience here shows that it is possible for progresive community groups to get an LPFM license.  WCRS-LP has been broadcasting for three years and had no trouble filling up a 12-hour a day schedule.  But then, since we are in a major metro area, this shouldn't be a surprise when the radio station truly serves the community.
