KHOI community radio has officially received its 'Notice to Proceed' with the building process necessary for going on the air. This is authorization was received from American Tower Company, from whom KHOI is leasing tower space near Story City. It authorizes KHOI to take the steps necessary to install its broadcast equipment.
KHOI poured the concrete foundations for the station’s transmitter shelter poured on July 16. On July 20, the transmitter shelter will be moved by crane to the tower site for installation. Broadcast equipment will be put in place shortly afterwards. All this is preparation for beginning to broadcast at 89.1 FM no later than August 17th.
The installation of the tower broadcast site, which includes transmitter shelter, transmitter, antenna, connecting cables and installation costs is valued at $60,000. The funds were provided entirely by Story County Community Foundation
and many individuals in the Story County area.
KHOI chief engineer Paul Nelson said: "It's been a long complicated road, but now it's all coming together very quickly. Even though now it's about the technology, the final goal will result in connecting people and community."
