dc.description.abstract"Low Power FM is one of the most under-researched forms of media in New Zealand. In late 2010 I sent out a self-selecting survey via two online groups, the LPFM User group on Yahoo Groups and the Radio Heritage Foundation email newsletter. This chapter provides a historical overview of Low Power FM in New Zealand and uses the results of the survey and my own experience in LPFM in New Zealand to help sketch a broad picture of the stations and services operating in this space. Minimal regulation of LPFM spectrum in New Zealand has created a form of open spectrum commons. While commons approaches can be innovative and experimental spaces, they are also subject to the tragedy of the commons. The benefits and limitations of open spectrum commons are explored, as are possible future developments of LPFM, community broadcasting, and spectrum management."en_US
