The original KHBC transmitter

We recently ran a competition celebrating 50 years of Hawaiian statehood. Readers were asked a number of questions about KHBC Hilo as featuring in our Art of Radio Hawaii Exhibition.

One reader sent us this photo of the original KHBC transmitter which still lives in Hilo thanks to Buddy Gordon of the new KHBC AM 1060. Hilo’s original KHBC went to air in 1936.

Our thanks to Don Mussell for sharing this special Hawaiian radio heritage image with us.
