On the morning of December 14, 2006, KJY-97 from Childress at 162.525 MHZ crackled to life. Located on a tall tower just northwest of the city, it's a full thousand watter, and a real blowtorch...in fact, this morning it could be heard by NWS staff on a ham radio at WFO Amarillo. If I remember correctly, it will serve around 6 counties around Childress on the Texas side, and 3 on the Oklahoma side. But the new digital transmitter with a high-gain antenna should allow the broadcast to go far. The fact that AMA can hear it at their office proves my theory.
