New Transmitters for KGLT and YPR in Helena!

September 2017 – Last Chance Public Radio in a cooperative effort with KGLT and Yellowstone Public Radio has helped both stations acquire new transmitter frequencies in Helena – KGLT at 89.1 FM and YPR at 88.5 FM - both signals began broadcasting last month.  LCPRA’s donation of its Mt. Belmont transmitter license to YPR helped catalyze their trade of the Hogback Mtn. transmitter to KGLT, who also agreed to give YPR their 98.1 translator.  The agreement addressed LCPRA’s long-term goal to help KGLT acquire a permanent transmitter license for Helena.
