103-FXD was quite amazing! Our very own Luke Noordyk, host of the Country Scoop with Luke and engineering genius, brought me out to our transmitter for a quick visit. I mentioned to Luke quite some time back that I’d love to visit our tower at some point. I couldn’t turn down the invitation!

With beautiful weather today, we had a chance to walk around the base of the tower, along with a visit inside the transmitter building. All those “thingamajigs” and “watchamacallits” were explained in great detail by Luke. I now have a much better idea on how the actual operation runs. I’m the guy behind the mic–what do I know about engineering!?!? I don’t mind getting my hands dirty every now and then and letting loose!

I felt like a kid who was just handed his very first candy cane. This experience was awesome! Look out Luke, I might actually have an interest in engineering!!

The 103-FXD tower is one mighty big stick! I bet you could see for miles and miles up there…

That's one sky-touching tower! Look at the size of that. This is where 103-FXD pushes out 100,000 watts of power to your speakers.
