WANTED for our classroom!
There is a new look in the PAL classroom. We have been working hard to create a clean uncluttered look. Two things that are standing out as needed items are Flat Screen Monitors and a Six Meter Radio. Flat screen monitors are reasonably priced these days and can be bought brand new for about $100.00! Not much to invest in a modern classroom. Stop in and see what we are doing these days. Oh, and drop off a flat screen!

Did you know that "FM" was invented in Yonkers?

The first "FM" broadcast was made on
 November 5th, 1935 from station W2XAG,
blocks away from the PAL.
 On November 5th, 2011 we celebrated
the 76th anniversary by transmitting from
 the PAL as a Special Event station
using the same call sign... W2XAG!
