David & Alesia Robinson


We have been a part of the FBN radio ministry since July, 1990, and began serving in the capacity of full time missionaries in November, 1994. Through David's prior military service and the experience gained during our time in the ministry, we can be a help to local churches in building their own FBN affiliate station as well as in maintaining the station once it is on the air without the church having to pay exorbitant fees as is the case in the communications industry. Because we are missionaries with the Fundamental Broadcasting Network, it is our desire to work with others who wish to be affiliated with FBN.


                                                                               HOW TO BECOME AFFILIATED  WITH FBN

Please be advised that the FCC is not accepting any new applications for non-commercial, educational stations. This has been the case since April, 2000. We regularly check the FCC website and other avenues to see if this has changed. Please copy/paste the following links to look up the status of silent AM and FM radio stations:  fcc.gov/mb/audio/status/silentAM.html   fcc.gov/mb/audio/status/silentFM.html  

It is possible to obtain an existing station or lease time on one. Click on the appropriate link on the engineering page to see if a silent station is near you. Silent means the station is off the air. If you find one on the list, we will be glad to help you with the contact information so you can get in touch with the owners. If there are no stations in your area, we can give you the name and phone number of a radio broker. A radio broker sells stations on commission, however, there is no charge to ask if there is anything available near you.

If you have a station and wish to use FBN programming, please call Pastor Eborn or Michael Ebron, the general manager at FBN headquarters for more information. If you have a Construction Permit or have acquired a station that needs work before going on the air, and you want to carry FBN programming, please contact missionary David Robinson. Pastor Eborn must give final approval before we begin the work.


                                                                                  WHAT WE DO AS FBN MISSIONARIES 

We operate on a love offering basis, however, many times there are expenses incurred that would also need to be covered. We ask that new affiliate churches take us on as missionaries to help us with our monthly living expenses.
