105.3 FM:
KAXE's translator at 105.3 FM in Bemidji is off the air. The tower holding our Bemidji translator blew down in the wind storm the other week. The tower, which was on the Bemidji Federal Biulding, didn't belong to KAXE and our equipment hanging on the tower was saved. We are making every effort to get 105.3 in Bemijdi back on the air as soon as we can. If you are able to help us pay some of the expenses to find a new tower location and reinstall the translator you can pledge using the options above, or call us at 218-326-1234.

The picture below of twisted metal is what was left of the tower. High winds blew the tower down so we have to dismantle it to keep it from falling to the ground. One of the legs broke in the wind, then the others bent as it went down and hung off the edge of the Federal building. We'll replace the translator tower as soon as we can to bring the signal back to Bemidji. You can still try 91.7fm in that area, or stream online at
