1) Finding a frequency is up to you. Use an FM receiver at the location of your intended transmission site. If you can't hear anyone on a particular frequency, then chances are it's not being used. Then tune each side of that frequency and see if you can hear anything. You need to be at least 200 kHz away from any other station.

2) How much it costs to start depends mostly on what gear you can find and what price you have to pay for it.
Second hand you might get enough gear to be on the air for under $500.
If you have to buy all brand new equipment it could cost you $1000+

3) You can advertise on LPFM, but if you earn more than a certain amount in any one year it will affect the fees you pay to APRA. Have a look around the rest of this site for information about APRA.
