In this day and age, it's very expensive to maintain a broadcast license 
and keep the transmitter powered. I'd imagine the license is worth more 
than the income it generates from advertising (limited spectrum / value 
"bubble" like real estate.)  The most punk rock thing to do is just move 
to internet streaming where it costs pennies to reach a global audience.

Then you can focus on your content and not fund-raising non-stop. Or at 
least, 2600 could be fund raising for 2600.
