KLDN Transmitter back at full power!

The KLDN Transmitter is finally operating at full power. Thank you to all of you in Central East Texas who have been very patient while a key part of the transmitter was sent to Nevada for a lengthy and, evidently, troublesome repair. We appreciate all of you who continue supporting Red River Radio, especially over these many weeks. Over the coming months, we will continue to make improvements at our Lufkin site so that our equipment will be less vulnerable to issues relating to electricy at the site. Again, thank you for your support!
