I stumbled on this video on youtube. It seems like some old guy has too much time on his hands and is out being a private citizen vigilante:
Part one, he is driving around a neighborhood with a spectrum analyzer looking at signal strength:
Seems slightly creepy.
Then there is part II, the plot twist:
Actually, looks like a nice studio. PRE BMX II console, RE-20 microphones, and a live performance room at a radio station, what a concept.
Part III, trouble of a technical nature sets in:
Brave man, fear of heights is overcome because of his love of radio. I myself suffer from Phronemophobia, not in myself, but in other people.
So this series goes on for some, then… First, a Notice Of Unauthorized Operation (NOUO), then, A construction permit for a C1 station! Wow!
So, they are currently building out their station and putting up a tower. Check out 89.1 Ken’s FM-KNNZ and see how they are doing. The call sign is KNNZ, licensed to Hawley, MN. Real radio, alive and well in some places at least.
I wonder what kind of transmitter that is, I do not recognize it.
Good luck, guys. I will have to check out the web stream, it sounds like fun.
