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.
