Letter to KOPN 1977

Dear Sirs:

Early this morning (Sept. 17, 1977), I received KOPN-FM from Louisville, Kentucky. The reception was fair to good and the signal was easy to identify as yours. I tuned in about 1:08 a.m. (CDT) and heard a female announcer talking about something called the North Village Auction, which was to be held today at 1 p.m. at a place called the Marketplace. The lady said that anyone with anything to donate could still do so by calling 449-0597. The announcement was followed by a male announcer who talked about the auction further and said, "You will benefit yourself and KOPN," by taking part. The announcement was followed by music.

As I said, the reception was fair to good and the station was easily identifiable as yours. My receiver is a Technics ST-7600 with a Pioneer SA-6500 amplifier, Winegard SC-650 antenna mounted at 30 feet on my home, about eight miles from downtown Louisville.

I would appreciate confirmation of my reception of KOPN-FM if the fact about the auction and the phone number, etc., agree with the broadcast. I enclosed a stamp for my verification and hope you find my report useful in knowing where your signal is heard. I hope to receive the station again sometime soon and I also hope the auction was a grand success!

Yours Truly,
