Station history[edit]

WMXP-LP signed on the air June 10, 2007. The station is owned by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. It was launched with the help of hundreds of local and national volunteers at the eleventh community radio barnraising of the Prometheus Radio Project. It is a non-commercial station, dedicated to African-American culture programming, claiming that it "will give a voice to the voiceless, and a home to knowledge, community enrichment and social justice advocacy."[1]

According to the FCC database, WMXP-LP went silent on May 20, 2011. No official reason is known.

Station returned to the air on May 18, 2012 from a new transmitter site via FCC Special Temporary Authority (STA) for lower antenna height while new 120 foot tower is being constructed. Signal strength is remarkably strong in most of the city due to unique audio processing, temporarily monophonic signal and the power of the people.
