Work Advanced on TV Station

November 5, 1952

The Spokesman-Review

Receipt of the final shipment of parts for its television broadcasting transmitter was announced Monday by station KHQ-TV.

Delivered at noon to the National Broadcasting Company affiliate’s Moran Prairie tower site was a 35,000-watt final stage amplifier—packed in 33 crates and boxes, and weighing about 12,500 pounds, said A.G. Sparling, director of engineering for the station.

The amplifier is one of many units of the KHQ-TV transmitter which will put out a signal of 100,000 watts. Various parts of the transmitter have been received here over a period of several months.

Weather conditions—and a shortage of qualified crews—have delayed the installation of the KHQ-TV antenna atop the KHQ radio broadcasting tower. Further electrical tests yesterday disclosed more technical difficulties—but the antenna may be hoisted this morning “if all goes right,” a station representative said.

“Studio cameras, remote cameras and controls, film cameras and necessary switching already have been delivered here,” Sparling said.
