CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: August 5, 2014

tower_edited

Hey friends,

Last week a few of us CKUT-ers hiked to the top of Mount Royal to our transmitter site for a tour of the place and a full run-down of what it takes to get our signal out into the air, 5600 watts strong. If you’ve never been to an actual transmitter, I’d definitely recommend it — radio is pretty fascinating stuff.

RPM charts return next week.

    Awesome! The exact location of your transmitter must be a well-guarded secret… or is it?
