GREAT NEWS!

    A new radio station is on the air serving the village of Scammon Bay, a coastal village about 150 miles northwest of Bethel.  KSCM is a Class D non-commercial station broadcasting at 94.3 MHz in the FM band, providing 24/7 Christian programming.  The studio for KSCM is located in the same building with KYKD in Bethel and the programming stream sent via internet to Scammon Bay where the transmitter and antenna are located.  The station is owned by VisionAlaska, a small non-profit Christian organization which is operating the station in cooperation with Voice for Christ Ministries and the Scammon Bay Evangelical Covenant Church.  KYKD is pleased to participate in this partnership to bring Christian radio to another village in western Alaska.

 YOU CAN LISTEN to KYKD ONLINE HERE!!     Welcome to the webpage for KYKD Radio, serving the Bethel and immediately surrounding Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta villages! KYKD is also heard via translator (repeater) stations in the villages of Hooper Bay, about 150 miles west of Bethel, in Quinhagak, about 75 miles south of Bethel, in Kalskag, about 75 miles northeast of Bethel, and in Aniak, about 100 miles upstream on the Kuskokwim River.  The last of these four stations came on the air in August of 2014, fulfilling a long-sought goal of using KYKD as the primary station for a group of translator stations serving the broader region.  In the summer of 2017 there was an opportunity to expand that group when the FCC granted a request to relocate a translator license owned by the Chignik Radio Association from Chignik Bay to the village of Togiak located on Bristol Bay about 150 miles southeast of Bethel. A new station was built at the new church in Togiak in August of 2017 which rebroadcasts KYKD to the villages of Togiak and Twin Hills. Thus, KYKD can now be heard over a total of six different transmitters in western Alaska. The programming and format of the station is oriented to the major culture of the region, that of the Yup'ik people, who have inhabited the Yukon and Kuskokwim Delta region for thousands of years.  It is our desire that KYKD would be effective in bringing the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people within this vast listening area and thereby bring glory to God and advance His kingdom.
