NOW TRY 6

KHQ-TV EXTENDS ITS SIGNAL TO 20% MORE TV SETS!

NEW 904’ TOWER-MOUNTAIN ANTENNA REACHES WAY OUT TO YOU – BRINGING A NEW HIGH IN VIEWING PLEASURE!

KHQ-TV’s new tower is up! Up 70 stories high on the top of Tower Mountain. Beaming a sharper, clearer picture to more viewers and fresh programming to new viewers. Now try Q-6! You’ll find KHQ-TV reaching out to where more people live, blanketing an area of 32,000 square miles—61% larger than ever before.

Only Tower Mountain could do it. Here’s what George C. Davis, Washington, D.C., consulting engineer says: “The Tower Mountain site was selected to give maximum effective coverage within the United States. Q-6 will now serve more U.S. population than any other Spokane television station.”

So tune Q-6! Try Q-6! There’s better reception for old friends and exciting viewing enjoyment for new friends on KHQ-TV.
