Bellingham radio station KAFE moves two points on the FM dial

The Bellingham Business Journal

Bellingham-based radio station KAFE 104.3 FM has swapped dial position with Vancouver, B.C-based radio station CHHR 104.1 FM.

The swap will be finalized during a ceremonial meeting at Peace Arch Park in Blaine on Jan. 14 at 12:30 p.m. Under the monument, airstaff from both stations will mark the occasion by swapping a four-foot-tall “Point One” for a “Point Three,” as well as other good neighbor gifts. The actual on-air swap happened at exactly 7:30 a.m. that morning

To accommodate the dial position change, KAFE has installed a new state-of-the-art six-bay, circular polarized antenna at 2,400-foot MSL elevation on its tower location atop Mount Constitution on Orcas Island, providing a huge coverage footprint from Seattle to lower British Columbia. The swap will also allow for CHHR to increase their signal strength in the Vancouver market.

KAFE recently celebrated it’s 20th anniversary of providing listeners in Northwest Washington and lower British Columbia with a family friendly radio station. For more information, visit
