Ribbon-cutting planned for new translator
KAFM Community Radio will celebrate its new Palisade translator with a ribbon-cutting at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Palisade Town Council Chambers, 341 W. Seventh St., in Palisade.
The translator was installed Sept. 20 as the result of numerous donations made by members of the community as well as a $2,500 donation by the Grand Junction Lions Club. The signal at 96.9 FM is currently in “testing mode at a lower wattage,” according to a news release from KAFM.
KAFM Community Radio has been on the air in the Grand Valley for 17 years through the efforts of volunteer programmers providing a variety of music and community programs.
