The New Millenium


In late 2000, a major initiative was begun to replace much of the ageing studio equipment, which had been in continuous operation since 1985. As part of the "15th Anniversary Equipment Replacement Project", the Master Control room was renovated with state of the art digital equipment and other facilities to enable KLUX to proceed into the future. Once again, the John G. and Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation responded generously with a grant, which, together with gifts from KLUX listeners, put the project well on its way toward completion.

The 15th Anniversary Project positioned the station for the digital era. KLUX now boasted over 240 gigabytes of digital audio storage for its library of four thousand musical selections and an equal number of announcements. While still capable of standard analog origination, the station could now record, store and deliver a digital audio stream from its hard drives to the input of the transmitter.

In early 2000, as part of the annual Gabriel Awards competition, KLUX was awarded national recognition for its outstanding achievement in total programming and public service by the National Association of Catholic Communicators, "UNDA USA".
