FRANKLIN COUNTY, IDAHO -- KBYU, without much fanfare, has a new
transmitter, called a 'translator' on the air in Franklin County,
Idaho. The transmitter allows KBYU's signal to reach most of the county.
The transmitter is on 102.3 FM and likely covers most of that county.
It is probably owned and operated by a community group rather than
BYU which is how most radio and TV translators up until recently were
managed and built.
This is the first such transmitter outside of the Wasatch Front. The
first translator was placed on the air in 1992 and was built to
improve reception in the southern part of Utah County. It was built
on 89.5 FM there and basically can be heard from Provo to about
