AM 1000 Seattle FCC History Cards

CLICK HERE to view the History Cards for this station.

A disgruntled former employee, Vincent L. Hoffart, who was fired from KISW in the late 1970s, has continually challenged the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) renewal application of KJR/KISW. In 1987, he wrote a book about his dealings with the FCC, KISW, and Kaye-Smith titled A Case Of Notorial Imperfections which was reprinted in 2006 as Gippergate. (Why the FCC continued to file KJR history under KOMO station cards, long after the stations seperated ownership–remains a mystery.)

    I’d say that KOMO came out the winner on the frequency swap: their signal on 1000 has been heard all over the world. In fact, I just learned today that last night KOMO was received in Northern Ireland, albeit by a very skilled, experienced “DXer” using a software driven (SDR) communications receiver and very elaborate antenna system
