Mount Dean Stone Electronic Site, southeast of Missoula, is home to
many stations. KBAZ tower is on the right.
KBAZ uses a twelve-bay Shively antenna. Just below the main antenna is a backup
antenna for KBAZ, and two STL antennas.
Mounted to the west leg of the tower, below the STL dishes, is the antenna for a
booster transmitter for KLTC.
Dean Stone is a very crowded site, so all the towers are self-supporting.
Luke at the front door of the transmitter building. Note the generator for
KBAZ uses an Energy-Onix transmitter. The separate single-phase power supply is on the right.
The equipment rack on the left houses support equipment for KBAZ, including STL
receiver, remote control, audio processor, main exciter, backup exciter, and
solid-state backup transmitter.
The transmitter building is large enough to accomodate future growth and
and still leave room for a workbench.
At the Dean Stone site, Clear Channel Radio also maintains a booster transmitter
for KLTC, Superior. The Harris Quest 1 kW transmitter operates with around 500
Watts into a two-bay antenna.
The tower to the north belongs to Fisher Communications, and supports the main
antenna for KZOQ.
Because Dean Stone gives such good coverage of Missoula and the Bitterroot Valley,
it is literaly covered with antennas.
The following links are for the transmitter sites.
