Radio From the Mountain Tops of Washington

Here's a pretty snapshot from Blag Mountain in the Central Cascades

Radio World loves to receive photographs that capture the allure of radio. Recently, we’ve put out multiple calls to our readership asking for pretty pictures of their facilities, and they did not disappoint! Want to share your own pics? We welcome all photos that capture the wonder of radio. Email them to [email protected].

Below is another nice photo of a tower site courtesy of one of our readers. This is from Clay Freinwald, assistant chief engineer at Northwest Public Broadcasting and a past recipient of the Radio World Excellence in Engineering Award.

He says: “Here’s one I shot a couple of weeks ago of the transmitting antenna for KOHO(FM) — licensed to Leavenworth, Wash., (west of Wenatchee) and operated by Northwest Public Broadcasting. The site is Blag Mountain in the Central Cascades of Washington state (elevation 4,687 ft.).”

KOHO is Class A station with an Effective Radiated Power of 0.95 kW. Its four-bay, omni-directional antenna made by Electronics Research Inc. is 59 ft. tall and located at the mountain’s summit (elevation 4,688 ft.).

The Cascade Range, or Cascades, is a major mountain range of western North America, extending from southern British Columbia through Washington and Oregon to Northern California.

Thanks for sharing, Clay!
