Ka’u, the southernmost district on the Big Island of Hawaii, finally has a radio station to call its own.
The remote region has a reputation for being a broadcasting deadzone, where cell phone signals weaken and the radio dial falls silent. With KAHU communtiy radio, local residents hope that that reputation may finally change.
The new radio station can be found on the fm dial on 91.7, and can be heard between the west side of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and Waiohinu. The studio and tower is located in the town of Pahala.
