Spring Trip 2009: Kingman, Arizona (and a tiny bit of Las
Part of the Spring Trip 2009 series.
Sunday morning, after driving up from Laughlin to Vegas, we kept on US 95
past the northern Las Vegas city limits into the Las Vegas Pima
Reservation to see a brand-new transmitter site. Then we headed
back south to Cashman Field, where the Las Vegas 51s play, to
enjoy some minor-league baseball before Scott and I went our
separate ways for the remainder of the trip. I headed out of town
by way of US 93, enduring the long slow crawl over Hoover Dam
(I'll be happy when the bypass is completed) and then southeast
into Kingman. There's not a whole lot to see in Kingman, although
the downtown area along Historic US 66 is notable (but very quiet
on a Sunday afternoon). Kingman now has one AM, one full-power
FM, about a dozen translators, a religious LPFM, a booster for a
station that got moved out of town, and a bunch of LPTVs. The one
remaining FM is up on Hualapai Mountain; even though it's a county
park I didn't bother to try to see it. (Most of the translators
are up there, too.) That left all of five stops to make in
Kingman before heading on east to Flagstaff for the night.
