The biggest event of the season to Iola television fans was the throwing of a switch on Nov. 21 that put KMBC-TV on the air with the highest tower in Kansas City and with power rated at 316,000 watts. Prior to that time, WDAF was the only station that could be received here with any regularity at all. Now KMBC provides the best reception in the area with the single exception of KOAM Pittsburg.
