Listener Comments and Reviews
I have loved listening to the morning show while Gary Freeman has been sitting in. Is it possible for him to become the "new" talk show host for that slot now that Dave has retired? If so, I am sure to keep listening to KGAB.

It's definitely been an unusual two months for their translator at 99.5. Y'all signed it on at the end of July, and it was going pretty well, even if reception was basically blocked Downtown by the RFI mess down there. (Imagine for a second, going down Lincolnway near the Post Six building, listening to KGAB, and then all of a sudden you hear a mixture of Sports, Gospel Music, and Oldies, and the RDS randomly comes on saying KWYG). Then in mid-August, KGAB took the translator off the air entirely. I now hear there is a new pattern from the same tower that's supposed to help 99.5's, signal here.
In my opinion, maybe they should move it to 96.3, or possibly 95.5. Either way, that would be a lot less interference, and having it on 96.3 specifically means they can up the wattage as well. Honestly though, I've been just fine with AM 650, and I think the rest of Cheyenne shares this sentiment, so there really isn't a need for a translator when you can get the main signal easier, and farther, or just listen on the internet.
By the way, cheers to Nick the Car Guy, he's a great local presence!

Some updates to my previous post: On October 12th, the translator returned to air using the new directional pattern, putting a decent signal into Cheyenne, but it was actually weaker than before. On my radio, it averages out as 23 dbu, as opposed to 29 dbu before, even though the major lobe of the new signal is sent near my general direction. The signal is suffice-able for driving around, however it is still prone to significant interference. The signal still sometimes gives-way to KQMT Denver depending on what part of town your on, or what direction your facing. When the K258DN signal is strong enough, it's a nice, static-free listen, however even then the feed that the translator uses can be a bit gritty and lossy. I think one of these days, they'll get it right, and I might make the switch, but for now, the main 650 AM signal does all the hauling it needs to to keep me on the main signal. (Much better distance covered too, and the signal is the original clean version!)
