KZUW (88.5 FM) is a classical music radio station licensed to Reliance, Wyoming. The station is owned and operated by the University of Wyoming.[1]

Signal

Broadcasting from a height above average terrain (HAAT) of 472.3 meters (1,550 ft), atop Aspen Mountain, south of Rock Springs, Wyoming, the station carries its 260 watts to most of western Sweetwater County. This includes good coverage in Green River and as far north as Reliance, the station's city of license. To the east, the station can likely be heard as far as Superior, Wyoming. Due to its location on the FM Dial (88.5), the FCC has limited the amount of power the station can carry.[2] The station's tower is 8,628 feet (2,630 m) above sea level on Aspen Mountain. It shares tower space with KUWZ and the local NOAA Weather Radio station.

History

On November 19, 2008 the station was sold to the University of Wyoming and signed on June 16, 2009.
