Orly Taitz announced [link to Taitz web site] that an AM radio station in Atlanta has offered the ersatz attorney her own radio show! Taitz says her show will be at 8 PM Eastern US time on 1620 AM and available for streaming and podcast.
The problem? Taitz doesn’t mention the name of the station, only its frequency, 1620 kHz. There is no licensed AM radio station in Georgia on that frequency according to the FCC AM broadcast license query page1. So what is this? I figured it must be one of those unlicensed low-power station run under FCC rules Part 15, a station whose effective range is limited to around 200 feet.
I spent a lot of time trying to figure this one out before I finally found it through the station’s phone number, which ends in “1620.” “Radio Sandy Springs” (Sandy Springs is in the Atlanta metro area) is essentially a collection of micro transmitters scattered around Sandy Springs all carrying the same audio programming. It also sends some programming through Blog Talk Radio. The station also goes under the name America’s Web Radio and Bold Ventures Radio. Their web site contains a video in support of Terry Lakin. With that big clue, I tracked down a page on the Terry Lakin Action Fund web site with links to both Radio Sandy Springs and the Orly Taitz web sites, and having nailed that down, I was able to confirm that Radio Sandy Springs “broadcasts” at 1620 kHz.
1There may have been a station, WRJG in Jefferson City, Georgia, on 1620 but it doesn’t appear to be operating now.
