KGO San Francisco, SF-810

A couple of days ago I got a nice e-mail QSL from Larry Jimenez who is working as a technichian in the Cumulus Media Group. Larry, who confirmed my e-mail reception report of KGO, is serving both KSFO and KGO. Yet another “west coaster” confirmed and I owe Larry a lot, because it wasn’t easy to get KGO confirmed, even if the station is heard quite regularly on 810 KHz in Northern Scandinavia. KGO was, for a number of decades, quite unique among news/talk-stations in the US –  doing all their programming themselves. Until 2007 KGO was the westcoast flagship station in the ABC network, until the station was bought by the Citadel Broadcasting. KGO is now owned by the Cumulus Media Group.

The KGO-810 audio clip is found here.




About Hans

Male. 50 years young. DX:er since 1980. In September 2011 I moved up to Vardø on Vardøya Island (EU-141) to start working as manager for the Coast Radio station in Vardø. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity to work with the thing that I think is the most interesting in the whole world - Radio! My main interest is, yeah - you guessed right: Radio. I'm a ham radio operator, holding the callsign LA2MOA. My main radio interests is low power operation and low band DXing on the amateur bands, but also mediumwave and tropical band DX-listening. I'm also interested in angling, fly-fishing and fly-tying. The area around Vardø offers some great opportunities to do all of this. And, since I'm of swedish origin, I'm also madly interested in ice-hockey and since 35 years I'm a hardcore supporter of Rögle BK in Ängelholm - one of the few really true hockey clubs left in Sweden.
