Creek... is for streams!

Back in 2012, it started as a pun: creek = stream
(as in, live audio streams).

But then, it became a question: How can small nonprofit media organizations stay sustainable?

While volunteering at a local nonprofit FM station in 2011, I watched them struggle with confusing software, and pay ridiculously high prices for it.

Also, I had just graduated from college, and I was looking for a good way to combine software, art, and nonprofits.

I then had the most profound thought of my life:

"Huh."

Ever since then, I've been building software for community radio.

Installing Ubiquiti STL at local nonprofit station KROV 91.1 FM.

Climbing roofs to help FM stations.

In 2013, KROV 91.1 FM (Oroville, CA) needed to beam a Wi-Fi signal over 12 miles to their antenna on top of a mountain.

To make this happen, Travis (Creek developer, on right), installed their Ubiquiti STL and designed the network infrastructure for their broadcasting systems.
