Former owner KIAE(FM) Aurora, NE 1980-85, (built from scratch and sold
station in '85) and former owner/operator K61CU-TV Lincoln, NE 1990-95, (performing the initial engineering work, to the actual construction and operation).
Applicant for several FM stations from 1983-87. (sold out to
competing applicants in Kearney, NE, Aspen, CO, Laramie, WYO, Red
Lodge, MT, Kingman, KN, etc) .
Wrote a book on low power FM stations, for aspiring owners, in 2002. Sold around 50 copies to applicants on file, with a very limited direct mail campaign.
Low powers now have regular type call letters like K J J J. The station broadcast music videos to start with, mainly aimed at the Univ of NE students who lived on campus. The University hadn't allowed Cablevision onto the campus, so the kids only had the major networks, 1 independent station (KPTM) and 61TV. (No Dish or Directv back then.) Programming started to include live sports feeds (football/basketball), classic movies, etc. An independent survey found that Ch. 61 had as many viewers as the #1 radio station had listeners. most times of the day. Back then, Nielsen refused to even list low powers, even if they had a sizable audience. The reason was never explained. They now do carry them, if they qualify with a large enough audience.
KIAE(FM) Aurora, NE (now KRGY-FM) March 1, 1980 103.1 mhz, 2.25KW at 90ft with a construction permit for 3KW at 250 ft.
The station started with a classic rock format, with classical music on Sundays from 6am -Noon. Quickly we added sports from the local team, the Aurora Huskies, the other schools in the county, Legion Baseball, and Univ. of NE sports. The format changed to country after awhile, then back to classic rock, and ended with a blues/rock format. One week before Christmas the station always went total Christmas music, with hours sponsored. Sports airtime was sold to a contract broadcaster, after the first 2 years, but the station did do it originally. Was the origination station for a 4 station network, set up to broadcast the basketball championships from Aurora a couple of times. No automation until last 1 1/2 yrs. All but one DJ trained on-the-air. About 10 total. Sold 1985.
