Montana's Oldest Radio Station Off the Air

Postby jon » Fri Jan 28, 2011 10:52 am

A legal squabble between the land owner of the transmitter site and the local station owner have KEIN-AM off the air, for some time to come.

Ironically, both individuals claim that they want the station back on the air ASAP.

Jon.....apparently it's a Montana kind of morning. Here's a story about Montana's 2nd oldest radio station:

I tried for these guys this morning with my spiffy new CCRadio-EP, but all I could on 600 was a faint Saskatoon.

From my Burnaby DX days of the 1960s, even in the winter, 11am-1pm reception of anything over the Rockies was next to impossible. Admittedly, Bruce Portzer heard, from Seattle, CBK-540 Saskatchewan one exceptional Saturday noon back in 2001 when I was hearing KEX Portland from here in Edmonton.

We in Alberta and parts of SK would get a cross of KEIN and CHLW St. Paul. KEIN is a classic! Hope it gets back on!
