Is your station interested in joining the PRSS? To become one of our interconnected stations, you must:

  1. Sign an Agreement
    Stations and other public telecommunication entities are required to sign a Satellite Interconnection Agreement with NPR Distribution which manages the PRSS.
  2. Pay an Annual D/I Fee
    All interconnected stations share financial responsibility for operating and maintaining the PRSS. The Distribution/Interconnection fee (D/I) is an annual fee set by the NPR Board of Directors to stations for access to the PRSS. The Board of Directors sets the rate annually.
