Radio Network
There are two types of radio networks currently in use around the world: the one-to-many broadcast network commonly used for public information and mass media entertainment; and the two-way radio type used more commonly for public safety and public services such as police , fire, taxicabs , and delivery services. Cell phones are able to send and receive simultaneously by using two different frequencies at the same time. Many of the same components and much of the same basic technology applies to all three. The TWO-WAY type of RADIO NETWORK shares many of the same technologies and components as the BROADCAST-TYPE RADIO NETWORK but is generally set up with fixed broadcast points (transmitters) with co-located receivers and mobile receivers/transmitters or TRANSCEIVERS . In this way both the fixed and mobile radio units can communicate with each other over broad geographic regions ranging in size from small single cities to entire states/provinces or countries

Gramophone Record
A PHONOGRAPH RECORD (also known as a GRAMOPHONE RECORD, especially in British English
British English
, or RECORD) is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. At first, the discs were commonly made from shellac ; starting in the 1950s polyvinyl chloride became common. In recent decades, records have sometimes been called VINYL RECORDS, or simply VINYL, although this would exclude most records made until after World War II . The phonograph disc record was the primary medium used for music reproduction until late in the 20th century. It had co-existed with the phonograph cylinder from the late 1880s and had effectively superseded it by around 1912. Records retained the largest market share even when new formats such as the compact cassette were mass-marketed

Rural Radio Network
The RURAL RADIO NETWORK (RRN) was an interconnected group of six commercial FM radio stations spread across upstate New York and operated from Ithaca, NY -- the first all-radio, no-wireline network in the world. It began operation in 1948 as an innovative broadcast service to the agricultural community, but competition from television—and a lack of affordable, well-performing FM receivers—caused the founders' original business plan to fail. The stations changed ownership, as well as Radio formats , several times in futile attempts to achieve profitability. Perhaps the group's most notable owner was the Christian Broadcasting

Network , headed by televangelist Pat Robertson
Pat Robertson
, which acquired the stations through a corporate donation in 1969

Monopoly
A MONOPOLY (from Greek μόνος mónos and πωλεῖν pōleîn ) exists when a specific person or enterprise is the only supplier of a particular commodity. This contrasts with a monopsony which relates to a single entity's control of a market to purchase a good or service, and with oligopoly which consists of a few sellers dominating a market). Monopolies are thus characterized by a lack of economic competition to produce the good or service , a lack of viable substitute goods , and the possibility of a high monopoly price well above the seller's marginal cost that leads to a high monopoly profit . The verb monopolise or monopolize refers to the process by which a company gains the ability to raise prices or exclude competitors. In economics, a monopoly is a single seller. In law, a monopoly is a business entity that has significant market power, that is, the power to charge overly high prices

Public Funding
A SUBSIDY is a form of financial aid or support extended to an economic sector (or institution , business, or individual) generally with the aim of promoting economic and social policy. Although commonly extended from government, the term subsidy can relate to any type of support – for example from NGOs or as implicit subsidies. Subsidies come in various forms including: direct (cash grants, interest-free loans) and indirect (tax breaks , insurance, low-interest loans, accelerated depreciation, rent rebates). Furthermore, they can be broad or narrow, legal or illegal, ethical or unethical. The most common forms of subsidies are those to the producer or the consumer. Producer/production subsidies ensure producers are better off by either supplying market price support, direct support, or payments to factors of production. Consumer/consumption subsidies commonly reduce the price of goods and services to the consumer

Broadcast Receiver License
A TELEVISION LICENCE or BROADCAST RECEIVING LICENCE is a payment required in many countries for the reception of television broadcasts, or the possession of a television set where some broadcasts are funded in full or in part by the licence fee paid. The fee is sometimes also required to own a radio or receive radio broadcasts. A TV licence is therefore effectively a hypothecated tax for the purpose of funding public broadcasting , thus allowing public broadcasters to transmit television programmes without, or with only supplemental, funding from radio and television advertisements . However, in some cases the balance between public funding and advertisements is the opposite – the Polish TVP broadcaster receives more funds from advertisements than from its TV tax
