The station, which began broadcasting at noon on December 22, 1974, is the only   radio station serving an approximate area of 88,000 square miles. It started   modestly with a $180,000 grant from the State of Alaska and after 22 months of   planning, KBRW began broadcasting with 1,000 watts of power and programmed music   shows, hosted by a cadre of community volunteers. That signal was strengthened   in the villages starting in 1988 with a series of five translators, one for each   out-lying village served.
