KAJN Radio Tower Accident Update

IN SPITE OF A TRAGIC INCIDENT WE HAVE SEEN THE HAND OF GOD MOVE.  KAJN-FM WAS LEASING TOWER SPACE FROM KATC-TV.  A SMALL AIRCRAFT APPARENTLY FLEW CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE TOWER TO CAUSE A COLLAPSE OF THE STRUCTURE.   WE ARE SORRY TO SAY THAT THE PILOT AND HIS SIXYEAR OLD DAUGHTER WERE KILLED IN THE CRASH.  PLEASE PRAY FOR THAT FAMILY.

THE TOWER COLLAPSE DESTROYED THE KAJN-FM BROADCAST ANTENNA AND OVER 1500 FEET OF TRANSMISSON LINE, THAT WE WERE USING TO SEND OUR SIGNAL TO THE HUGE COVERAGE AREA WE WERE BLESSED TO HAVE.  AS THE TOWER COLLASPED IT DESTROYED THE BUILDINGS ON THE GROUND, EXCEPT FOR THE KAJN BUILDING THAT CONTAINED OUR BROADCAST TRANSMITTERS.  IT WAS A MIRACLE OF GOD THAT KEPT THAT KEY BUILDING FROM BEING DESTROYED.  THE SECOND MIRACLE OF GOD WAS THAT KYBG-FM HAD A TOWER IN THE NEARBY VICINITY THAT HAD A SPARE BROADCAST ANTENNA AND A TRANSMISSION LINE ATTACHED THAT RAN FROM THEIR BUILDING UP THE TOWER.  THE OWNER PHIL LIZOTTE ALLOWED KAJN TO USE HIS TRANSMITTER BUILDING, THE SPARE TRANSMISSION LINE AND SPARE BROADCAST ANTENNA.  THIS ENABLED OUR ENGINEER, TONY EVANS, TO BE VERY CREATIVE AND GET KAJN-FM BACK ON THE AIR WITHIN JUST 11 HOURS OF THE COLLAPSE OF THE KATC TOWER.  WHILE WE NOW BROADCAST WITH A SMALL PERCENTAGE OF OUR NORMAL POWER WE ARE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO SERVE A GOOD BIT OF OUR LISTENING AREA.  WE ARE GRATEFUL TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER FOR HIS HAND AT WORK IN THIS SITUATION ON OUR BEHALF.  A HUGE THANK YOU GOES OUR TO FELLOW BROADCASTER AND FRIEND PHIL LIZOTTE FOR HIS GRACIOUS HELP AND INTEREST IN GETTING US BACK ON THE AIR.

NOW AGAIN WE ASK YOU TO PRAY FOR THE FAMILY THAT LOST A FATHER AND DAUGHTER.  WE ALSO ASK FOR PRAYER FOR CRAIG AND I AS WE MOVE THRU THE WEB OF RULES AND REGULATONS IN A SEARCH FOR A TALL TOWER TO RELOCATE KAJN-FM TO.  OUR GOAL, PRAYFULLY IS TO GET KAJN BACK UP TO FULL POWER AND TO DUPLICATE OR INCREASE THE COVERAGE WE HAVE ENJOYED FOR THESE MANY YEARS.  WE NEED THE WISDOM OF THE LORD TO HELP US IN SO MANY WAYS.  THEN PRAY FOR THE HEAVY FINANCIAL LOAD THAT THIS WILL BRING TO KAJN.  WE ARE BELIEVING OUR HEAVELY FATHER TO PROVIDE EVERY NEED THAT IS INVOLVED IN THE RESTORATION OF KAJN-FM.  THANK YOU FOR STANDING WITH US IN THE PAST AND AGAIN AT THIS TIME.
