KNX Los Angeles CA 1070 kHz QSL

KNX Los Angeles CA on 1070 kHz was heard on the 29th April 1988. Another memorable catch, the station made it through over an impressive distance of 16 050 km to Fish Hoek via the FRG7 and 25 metre longwire antenna.

Director of Techical Operations, Erik Disen kindly replied to my reception report with the above QSL.

A Salute To Columbia Square

The historic Columbia Square - the home of KNX from 1938 (until 2005) and the Columbia Broadcasting System's West Coast operations headquarters until 2007 (photograph Wikimedia Commons).

Michael Linder's special audio programme, "A Salute To Columbia Square", is well worth a listen for anyone interested in a fascinating account of the broadcast history of KNX's Sunset Boulevard studios.

The programme, available here (scroll to the bottom of the Air Checks page), includes many interesting archive broadcasts and interviews with pioneers who helped create radio’s Golden Age.
