KAGV Big Lake AK -1110
The 5th of January -11 was a fantastic date with low noise and many exotic signals. At local lunchtime the signals was still present and a lot of Alaskan and a few Hawaiians was heard here in Möklinta.
As late as 1400 local time the signal of KAGV came up over the noisefloor with a beutiful ID as " You´re listen to KAGV 11-10 -Alaskas Gospel Voice, broadcasting from Houston, Alaska and licensed by the Federal Communications Commission as KAGV Big Lake" .
Have tried to get the station verified erlier with no sucess, but today I saw my friend Hans Ostnell received a letter from Interim Station Manager, Brian Blair. A email together with my recording was sent and only a few hours later Brian verified my reception after listening to my mp3 recording.
KAGV is a christian station serving the Matanuska and Susitna Valleys with their 10kW transmitter since the summer of 2002. The Cities Houston and Big Lake have about a population of 2500 each. The nearest larger city is Anchorage, about 60 miles away, or about 15 min by plane !
