New transmitter building, 1941

Title
New transmitter building, 1941
LC Subject
KOAC (Radio station : Corvallis, Or.) Building
Description
Located on the college experimental farm at Granger (about seven miles north of campus), this new transmitter house and two new 325-foot radio towers (in rear) were required in order for KOAC to increase the station power from 1000 to 5000 watts. The Granger site provided sufficient room for a ground system of 66 miles of copper wire buried two feet deep. The KOAC transmitter is a familiar landmark on Hwy. 20 to commuters between Corvallis and Albany and is on the Benton County Register of Historic Resources.
