From Stephen Lockwood:
KKXA is now broadcasting 10 kW non-directional on 1520 kHz from Snohomish. Those of you all with HD radios tell us where you can hear it. It will soon be 50 kW just a few more high voltage problems to chaise down.
The FCC has granted KRKO a construction permit to increase daytime power to 50,000 watts. KRKO is now a full-time 50,000 watt radio station…FINALLY. Congratulations Andy!
From Andy Skotdal:
Many of you have been a source of great help and ideas, and it’s been with your assistance that this project is finally coming to pass after 14 years of work. I appreciate the kind words. Thank you.
Our August Chapter luncheon speakers will be talking about the KRKO and KKXA transmitter facilities in Everett. Their presentation will bring us up-to-date on the construction and reconstruction of 50,000 watt KRKO-AM 1380 following ten years of land-use litigation and vandalism that destroyed the stations antennas. They will also bring us up-to-date on the second diplexed 50,000 watt transmitter for KKXA on 1520 kHz.
