89.1 Ken's FM is a locally owned community non-profit radio station that supports local artists and musicians in Fargo-Moorhead. We are desparately in need of your help to keep our commitment to the local music community. By donating to our cause you can insure that local music will continue to have a venue in Fargo-Moorhead. We need $6000 to purchase needed equipment for our broadcast system and to establish our 501C3 tax exempt status. Getting a 501C3 status is a BIG plus for people that will receive a tax credit for their donation.

Here's what we need for equipment:

CAP-EAS Decoder- required by the FCC..................................................$1,337.21.00

New 4CX5000A tube- required to make our 100,000 watts licensed power.......$975.00

3-Phase Rotator- Required to enable our transmitter to make full power.......$1,925.00

Fee for filing our 501C3 application...................................................................$750.00

What's left over will be used to pay shipping and for installing the new equipment.

Ken's FM was built by two very dedicated  local people wanting to serve their community by giving something back. We have no big corporation behind us and built the entire station out of our own pocket selling almost everything we own and using a family loan to pay the rest. Ken, our president, has over 40 years in the broadcast industry, and Chris has over 15 years as bookkeeper and staff management. We can make this work, we just need your help.

Right now Ken's FM is the only radio outlet dedicated to providing a venue for young up and coming area artists and musicians in Fargo-Moorhead. You're help will insure that can continue. We feature live performances from either live bands in our studios or at different venues around town.
