A Brief History of the Micro-Radio Movement in the USA

The full article is not available online, but the summary abstract is included below for reference.

This history of microwave (pirate) radio in the United States is devoted to the founding and expansion of a small radio station in Springfield, Illinois. WTRA began as a low-budget outlet in a housing project community, but the FCC’s attempts to shut it down strengthened its resolve and helped politicize the movement.
