    KCHU was thrilled to host a field trip from FOCUS Homeschool on April 22. Educational tours were conducted by Karen Allred, KCHU staff. Students were lead through the entire station operation from how it is powered and how radio is transmitted and received with radio towers and satellite dishes. They were invited to speak in the production booth mics and hear their voices, and student Maddie Franklin recorded the KCHU call letters for broadcast! At the end of the tour, attendees were treated with pastries donated by Safeway and a goody bag from KCHU, as well as a coloring book from SPACE: Science, Physical, and Academic Enrichment, in honor of Earth Day. If your family or group would like to schedule a tour of KCHU please call 835-4665
