Broadcast Technical Consulting and Sales
The owners...Rod Grams and Chris Grams at the front desk below the famous KLTF neon
sign. That sign was outside the original KLTF AM
transmitter building starting in the early 1950's.
The station moved to downtown Little Falls for many years where KFML Radio
was added. Then to a new studio facility was
built with the help of M. W. Persons and Associates
late summer and early fall of 2000. That building is at 16405 Haven Road
on the north side of Little Falls, MN.
WYRQ Radio was added as well.
This is the same location as
the original KLTF transmitter site.

Long Distance reception report below:
January 19, 2011 e-mail:
Greetings from Finland, from the northernmost corner of Europe! I’m one
of the distant listeners, who has picked up Your broadcast on radio
waves with my special communications receiver, here on the northern
latitudes of the world. This communication indeed took place with a
radio receiver, not via Internet!
I’m a 50-year old sales Development Director, and my favorite pastime since early 1970s has been to listen to the distant radio stations with my special receiver - I still like to listen to a distant radio station with a communications receiver, together with the adjacent noise and interference.
I heard Your station during a special listening trip in a very remote and isolated place, in the northernmost region of our country, in Lapland. This place is about 200 miles above the Arctic Circle! Every winter I take a week off and rent an old, very small house and spend the week just by listening to my radio receiver up there in the North, in order to hear distant radio stations. The direct translation of the name of the region is Love River. In the whole region there are just a half a dozen of houses, and the nearest small town is 40 miles away. The purpose of going into the middle of wilderness is that the level of manmade noise, disturbance of the electric equipment that causes interference, is non-existing. And into the nearby forests and hills one can build long, directional aerials, which are essential when one wants to hear weak, distant signals.
I heard KLTF on 960 kHz, January 13th 2011 at CST AM:
I used a special communications receiver, Perseus SDR, and the aerial was a directional beverage, 3000 feet, directed to eastern USA. The signal was weak to good, and there was interference from other stations. So in general the reception was moderate.
Me and my wife have had the pleasure of visiting the USA a couple of times, we spent some summer vacations on the west coast, and my aunt lives in Philadelphia PA so I’ve visited some east coast states and Great Lakes states as well. We’re looking forward to coming back again!
Thank You for taking time for this international correspondence. I’d be very happy to receive your verification for my report. Best regards,
