Hawaiʻi Island West Transmitter Project - Charter Members

There’s nothing more impressive than watching an entire community pull together in order to achieve a specific goal. In this case, the June 2012 announcement that the FCC had issued a short-term construction permit for KHPH 88.7 FM in Kailua-Kona that had to be on the air by April 2013 galvanized the West Hawaiʻi community. Here is the honor roll of residents and local businesses who contributed to the West Hawaiʻi Transmitter Project, ensuring that it went on the air Thursday, February 14, 2013. It’s your station!
