In the early 1980s, there were 3 important radio stations in Salina, Kansas. KFRM-550 had the farmers, KSKG-99.9 (“99KG”) had the kids, and KSAL had everyone else. They were full service radio with a solid signal 24/7. During the nighttime hours, they employed a “four leaf clover” directional pattern. One of the lobes pointed northeast, so I could hear them extremely well at my location.
This brief aircheck was received from Apple Valley, Minnesota, using a Pioneer SX-3900 receiver and horizontal long wire antenna. A Technics stereo cassette deck and Scotch Dynarange tape were used to make the recording.
