Translator Installation atop Leahi Hospital, probably 1971

Photo above: the ASUH funded KTUH’s first translator atop Leahi Hospital in Kaimuki. The translator covered all the way to Aina Haina and broadcast a signal that was more powerful than KTUH’s then-60 watt antenna.

KTUH Alumni Reunions

2010 Reunion Photo

KTUH staff from the ’70s: Fred Barbaria, Gene Davis, Ken Kuniyuki and James Tomitagawa, Jr.

KTUH alumni have held two reunions so far. The first, in summer, 2011, was held on campus on the makai Hemenway patio, with about 75 alumni and guests attending. We celebrated 45 years of KTUH being on the air (starting with the carrier-current operation in 1966).

The second reunion, celebrating 45 years of FM operation, was held in June, 2014. A wide spectrum of ages and years at KTUH was evident.

What’s next? Hopefully a big celebration for the KTUH alumni, staff and listeners in 2019. Stay tuned!
