KGKD 90.5 FM
Thank you for your prayers! KGKD began broadcasting to the Columbus, Nebraska area at 1:00 a.m. on Friday, April 5, 2013. We are thanking the Lord for allowing us to begin this new radio ministry in central Nebraska.
Here are antenna bays 7 and 8 ready to be hoisted 500 feet in the air.
Up, Up and Away! The bays are on a slow journey to their new home on the tower. When in place, they will help to broadcast the Good News with 10,000 watts of power to the Columbus area.
President of the Praise Network, Gene, is helping out as a ground crew member. Here he is guiding the antenna bays with the tag line.
Another picture of the final antenna bays -- number 7 and 8.
Praise Network Engineer, Alex, is running the "Cat Head". This device pulls the antenna into the sky!
Here's Gene keeping a careful eye on the rising antenna!
Here is a very big spool containing 500 feet of transmission line. Getting the transmission line in place was a big job on a breezy day. We thank God for helping us to to get everything installed safely.
