The University's student-run radio station, Radio K, is moving to the big-time world of FM radio. Radio K is Minnesota's oldest radio station, broadcasting since 1922 at 770 AM. Due to FCC regulations, Radio K was unable to broadcast during the night hours on their AM frequency, so the move to FM broadcasting is also a move to 24-hour broadcasting. Listen to them at 104.5 FM in Minneapolis and 100.7 in St. Paul, or online at radiok.cce.umn.edu.
October can mean many things: falling leaves, Halloween, a steadily falling thermometer...but to a dedicated group of U of M students, it means only one thing--Solar Decathlon competition month! In our August issue, you heard about the U's solar house entry, the ICON house. This month, keep an eye on the University's Solar Decathlon team Web site, as well as the Department of Energy Solar Decathlon Web site for results. The winner will be announced on Friday, October 16!
