KURA-LP began in January 2000 when a high school student, a teacher and a consultant combined to apply for an LPFM license. Exactly one year later KURA (Ouray School District R1) was issued a construction permit. Eight months after that, with as little as $8,000 in miscellaneous equipment, we were on the air! August 8, 2001. In October of 2001 we received a PTFP grant and were able to 'do it right-'a real console, EAS equipment, sound editing stations, remote broadcasting capabilities- just about all we needed. After almost five years of continuous service to the communities of Ouray and Ridgway, Colorado- we are "radio just around the corner." Housed in Ouray School and manned by a staff of 15 high school students, we are small, but mighty. Covering almost the entire county, KURA strives to please the locals and tourists too! Give us a call with your suggestions.
