We rebuilt this station’s studio couple of years ago. WKZE is licensed to Salisbury, Connecticut. The transmitter is located near Millerton, NY and the studio is in Red Hook, NY. Today, I had to go to the transmitter site to fix a problem with the station’s processor. While there, I snapped a few pictures:

As you can see, this transmitter was originally manufactured for WHVW-FM, which is now WCZX. The station has a large, mostly cult following throughout the mid Hudson valley. Even though it is a 3,000 watt class A station, it’s coverage carries far beyond it’s theoretical 60 dBu contour:
This is because the station is in mono.
