KUNC: Decades on the Mountain Airwaves


        Radio on FacebookJoin us on Facebook

After its years of evolution, KUNC settles into its new home serving Colorado's eastern plains and mountain communities.

All audio originates or is routed to the equipment room and distributed to the other studios. Satellite receivers, uplink modem, Arbitron encoder and monitors, ISDN, EAS and air monitoring, audio processing, STL, etc, are all located in the equipment room.

The rest of the studio equipment includes Electro-Voice RE-20 mics, DBX 286S processors, Telos One hybrids, O.C. White booms, BE Audio Vault automation, Studiohub SHHP headphone amplifiers, Moseley SL9003Q STL, numerous XLR and 1/4" connectors, RJ-45 crimps, some punch blocks as well as shielded and non-shielded CAT-5 cable. KUNC had very few problems with the move. Some obstacles included securing all of the necessary permits, but that goes with any move. Another problem was getting the STL antennas properly aligned to deliver a strong enough signal for KUNC's nearly 40-mile shot to Buckhorn Mountain. We also had to dig up the parking lot for cabling and electrical service to the satellite antennas. But it all paid off. At 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010, KUNC began broadcasting from our brand new studio!
