KBOZ, Bozeman
signed on the air in December, 1975, under the ownership of Bill Reier.
In 1988, the station was sold to Citadel Communications.
In 1996, the station was sold back to Bill Reier. The station operates on 1090 kHz, with 5,000 Watts, non-directional days, and utilizes a 5-tower directional array at night. The station often receives reception reports from distant listeners (DXer's) all over the world.
Five towers with their red lights blinking in the night, Dec-2000.
Installed in 1975, and still in continuous use, Harris/Gates MW-5 transmitter, 17-Dec-2000.
The "doghouse" for tower 3 houses the antenna matching network for non-directional operation during the day. January, 2001.
This is what we broadcast engineers call the ATU. At KBOZ, it is one of five fabricated by the Gates Radio Company (Harris Corporation) in 1975. This one is installed in the doghouse at tower 3. This photo was taken in January, 2001.
This Gates console is the original, installed in 1975. Over the years, this studio has had turntables, cart machines, reel tape machines, Steve Campbell's Darth, and the computerized Scott Studios.
New KBOZ studio under construction, March, 2004. The R-90 console has been temporarily set on the counter to evaluate various layouts. The video monitor arm risers were fabricated by Norco in Missoula.
Final configuration of the KBOZ studio. The big console, three video monitors, three keyboards, and telephone control console provide great flexibility along with seeming complexity. When Dave Visscher says he is overwhelmed by his new studio, this is why.
