talk KXLJ in Alaska launched on 1330 AM
new progressive talk station is conducting test
transmissions in Alaska on 1330 kHz mediumwave.
KXLJ is licensed in the capital Juneau, and has
been testing its transmitter for the past three
months. Regular AM broadcasting will begin by the
end of August, says production manager Jacob Caggiano
in an interview with DXing.info. According to Caggiano,
KXLJ will eventually have a daytime power of 10,000
watts and a night-time power of 1,000 watts, although
currently daytime power has remained around 1,000
watts because of transmitter problems. KXLJ is an
Air America Radio affiliate, and aims to offer a
progressive alternative to conservative talk radio.
During the current test phase programming feed is
retrieved from the Internet, while a satellite feed
is still under construction. KXLJ can be reached
by writing to 1105 W. 9th St., Juneau, AK 99824.
The telephone number is 907-796-1330.
