Tucked into the state's remote southeast corner, off the beaten path for pretty much anyone who's not headed from San Diego to Tucson, the Imperial Valley is a dusty, dry, painfully impoverished, often hellishly hot flat place free to message dating sites lakeland much of anything to draw your average tourist. So it was almost a given that we'd get there sooner or later for Tower Site of the Week, right?
Actually, we got there twice in - once in April, spending a night in El Centro on the way from Tucson to Las Vegas not very directly, obviously as part of the "Spring Trip " we've been in the process of chronicling here, and then once more in the blazing heat of August, on the way from Yuma up to Palm Springs, to pick up a few stray sites we'd missed the first time. El Centro is the commercial free discreet tampa chat room of the Imperial Valley, and it's where we found most of the area's broadcast activity during our April visit.
The city was just 21 years old when it got its first radio station.
There was also a construction permit for KXO-TV on channel 7 in the sixties, though the station was evidently never built. Today, KXO anchors the rundown business district on Main Street, next to the archway that rises over Main at the corner of Fourth Street, and as we'll see shortly, it's pretty much the only local English-language secular radio voice in the county these days.
El Centro is just eight miles or so from the Mexican border, and the airwaves here are full of stations from the fairly sizable Mexicali market just across the border, ruleta chat espanol by something like a dozen AMs and as many FMs.

The domestic commercial Spanish-language radio fhat is pretty much owned by Entravision, which has a sizable studio complex along Highway 86 N. Imperial Avenue just north of downtown. Rather than rebuild at the old site, KXO picked a new site on Villa Road just northeast of downtown, within sight adult phone chat lines in blikstorp the KWST tower on Dogwood Road, and by the time of our visit in there was only an empty field to be seen at the old KXO location, and a shiny new foot tower was waiting to greet us at the new site.

On the west side is the self-supporting tower of KUBO From here, we jump south a few miles to Calexico, right on the border, and forward a few months to August, when we finally made it there to see what there was to see.

Once upon a time, Calexico had a local AM station of its own, free kik chat if you're driving north out of town on Highwaythe main road between Calexico and El Centro, you might free chat rooms in plantation florida it's still there, if you look to your left and see that big red "KICO" by the side of the highway. It changed city of to Heber and moved to a new tower site which we somehow still missed seeing along Highway 86 between Calexico and El Centro, and now this site sits silent.
Let's move north again and back to our April visitshall we? Entravision's KSEH KSIQ was about to be in the headlines when we visited: its owner, Cherry Creek Broadcasting, had already applied to move two hours west to the much more lucrative San Diego market, trading its booming 50 kW class B al for a much smaller B1 al d to Campo, with an on-channel booster carrying the al right into San Diego.
That move was still cnat a year in the future when we visited, so KSIQ was still cranking out nonstop hit music here as "Q KROP was later purchased by a local operator and returned to the air late in the summer of with talk programming.

We'd see it twice in once as the northernmost point on our April excursion around the Imperial Valley before turning back to El Centro and eventually to Yuma and then up the Centroo River valley, a trip we'll share with you in next week's installmentand then again in August on the way up to Calipatria and then past the strange, sad Salton Sea en route to Palm Springs.

Every town's got to have some sort of tourist hook, and Calipatria's claim to fame is its depth - at ourworld chat below sea level, it boasts that it's the lowest town in the Western hemisphere, and it backs up that assertion with that flagpole shown at the left. It's feet tall, of course, putting its tip right at sea level, and it comes with the somewhat debatable label of "world's tallest flagpole," which is evidently not at all true.
Indeed, its very basic tower behind the Calipatria water plant didn't even quite trigger the autofocus on our camera correctly! And that, with the exception of that pesky new KGBA tower and of course all those als so tantalizingly close across the border in Mexicali, is about as much of the Imperial Valley as we can show you.
In next week's installment, mew continue the "Spring Trip " series with still more exotic destinations hopscotching the state lines of California, Arizona khorasan chat Nevada: Blythe, Quartzsite, Parker, Char Havasu City and Laughlin.
