KTUH seeks donations to cover expenses


    University of Hawaii at Manoa college radio station KTUH-FM maintains a transmitter site atop Mount Tantalus.

After acquiring and activating a new 7,000-watt antenna and transmission site atop Mount Tantalus last summer, University of Hawaii-Manoa radio station KTUH-FM is asking listeners to “Turn It Up” in support.

For years, KTUH listeners had to jump between frequencies to catch the station depending on where they were tuning in from on Oahu. A single frequency — 90.1 FM — now covers the entire island along with an online stream at

The station, which was founded in 1969, is holding its annual Radiothon fundraising drive this week through Saturday to collect $30,000 in donations. The money will be used to supplement funds from student fees, which fall short of covering KTUH’s operating budget.

Tax-deductible donations can be made via check — made out to “UH Foundation” with “KTUH” listed on the memo line — sent to KTUH-FM Honolulu, 2445 Campus Road, Hemenway Hall No. 203, Honolulu, HI 96822. Donate by phone by calling 956-5288 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, or visit the UH Foundation website, click the “Make a Gift” button and enter fund number 12063604.
