Below are ministries, ministry organizations and Christian owned companies that will help you to set up your Christian radio station or translator station. Some work in the USA and some are mainly interested in working on missionary radio stations. From personal experience, if you try and contact some of the missionary organizations below by phone or email, they are not always there to answer the phone or email as they are busy missionaries. Sometimes you will have to try again.
