UP-FM is conceived to be a network of strategically placed low-power (max 10W) FM transmitters on the UP Diliman campus and in other places. Its source content is streamed from a DILC server. The fully automated audio stream is also available online at up-fm.org.
UP-FM's potential audience on campus include people with FM-ready mobile phones and those in offices with radios. The station can also be "installed" outside the UP Campus where there is Internet connection and low-power transmitters can be established.
Planned initial contents include demo tracks from campus bands, music education program, music recitals, stream of important campus academic events, campus bulletin.

Special thanks to the UP Computer Center for DILC's Internet connectivity.
UP-FM has a research component. Potentially this cost-effective community-based FM "station" can complement DZUP, the official AM station of the University, and commercial radio stations.
The system will also be used to prototype a network that can be used during disaster or crisis situations.
We need volunteers for transmission, infrastructure maintenance, sound engineering, and programming. DJs, marketing specialists, student orgs, aspiring bands are also welcome.
