1270 kHz

 

The AM frequency of 1270 kilohertz is defined by the FCC as a Regional Channel Class B or D frequency.  In Idaho, KTFI is the only  station on 1270.  Across the US, however, there are over 55 stations assigned to this frequency, several in Canada, and several  in Mexico and other North American areas.  It is for this reason stations on this frequency either reduce power or switch to a directional antenna (or both) at night to reduce interference.    Some stations on 1270 operate only during the daytime hours.   (Information updated February  2008)
