Nautel XR12 and AMPFET Find New Home as One of America’s Most Remote AM Sites Signs Off

Crawford Broadcasting is in the final stages of moving KBRT from its remote Catalina Island site to a new site in the hills of eastern Orange County. Like most Crawford properties, the transmitter of choice at Catalina Island — as at the new site — is Nautel: There’s an XL12 running as the main transmitter and an AMPFET as the backup.
There’s already floor space blocked off at the new transmitter site for the XL12 to be shipped over to become a backup itself to the new NX50 already in place there; the AMPFET will be sold, probably to start a new life in some other country.
