SCC does not go to all communities in the metro but does provide great outreach into the suburban areas. The program will be viewable in Birchwood, Dellwood, Grant, Lake Elmo, Mahtomedi, Maplewood, North Saint Paul, Oakdale, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake, White Bear Township, and Willernie. If you don't live in this viewing area but would like to have the St. Paul DFA Link Iraq War Forum aired on your local cable access channel, please contact St. Paul DFA Link member Stan Hilliard.

Stan is attempting to work with another local cable access provider (CTV15), which creates the content for channel 15 for in Arden Hills, Falcon Heights, New Brighton, North Oaks, Roseville, St. Anthony, and Shoreview. In order to be shown in the CTV15 area, a resident of the area must submit the program material. If you live in CTV15 area and would like to help ensure that the St. Paul DFA Link Iraq War Forum is aired on CTV15, please contact St. Paul DFA Link member Stan Hilliard.

Stan is also looking for volunteers willing to help place the St. Paul DFA Link Iraq War Fourm on the internet. (hint, hint)
