The K-JAZZ Radio Network broadcasts from transmitting sites on Mt. Elden near Flagstaff, the peak of Bill Williams Mountain near Williams, from Mt. Francis above Prescott and from Blake Ranch Mountain near Kingman. A wide range of seasonal weather conditions can affect the Network's ability to maintain consistent service. During the summer months, rain, wind, lightning storms and power outages occur frequently. Winter brings heavy snow, blizzard conditions and ice storms which can compromise the ability of FM transmission systems to operate efficiently. During periods of winter storm activity, it is often necessary for us to temporarily reduce power to keep broadcast systems on the air when tower icing occurs which can cause damage to antennas and transmitting equipment. No matter what the season, maintaining operations at these mountaintop transmitter sites is difficult at best. Accessing these broadcast sites to perform maintenance work is a dangerous task. K-JAZZ Network engineers travel to these remote locations on a regular basis at great personal risk.
