KIRO AM on Vashon Island, Seattle

kiro radio tower

KIRO 710 transmitter building and towers on Vashon Island near Seattle.  KIRO talk radio is now on FM.  Broadcasting from another location on 97.3 FM.  This facility has become a sports (boring) station as of April 2009.

I took this image around 1990 when a friend, and I took the ferry and bicycled around Vashon.  This 50,000 watt signal can be heard over much of the state, by day.  Farther by night.  One of the main towers is visible.
