KIRO-TV UHF translators – 1967

The engineers at KIRO-7 TV realized the challenging, variable terrain of the Puget Sound cities & communities left “pockets” where reception of channel 7 was less than perfect.  The station was an early adopter of UHF translators to reach into these difficult locations, plus extend a clear signal to adjacent cities.  The channel number is built in to the translator call signs.
