Ways to Listen 


Classical KING FM has been broadcasting locally at 98.1MHz on the FM dial since May 21, 1948. Our broadcast transmitter is located on West Tiger Mountain near Issaquah, WA (Coordinates: 47.488369, -121.947788). Due to the area's hilly terrain, some radio receivers need additional antenna support:

For table or portable radios try re-positioning the radio or antenna orientation toward the KING FM transmitter location.

For home stereos that have a hookup for an external antenna there are several types of external antennas. An indoor Dipole antenna is very inexpensive (less than $5.00), and can be positioned on an interior wall in either a horizontal or vertical orientation. When horizontally mounted the broad side of the antenna should be directed towards the KING FM transmitter. Try moving the antenna around for a clearer signal. A set of TV rabbit ears also can work well as a simple dipole antenna.

Other antennas include powered plug-in models that provide greater reception gain as well as some signal amplification, and range between $15.00 and $50.00.

If you live in British Columbia, check this list to find KING's FM frequency near you. To use this service, you may have to hook up the external antennal connection of your FM receiver to your cable box.
