Hawaii Public Radio - Stations


HPR operates as two distinct services. "HPR-1," based on KHPR, focuses on classical music and fine arts programming. "HPR-2," based on KIPO, airs NPR news and talk, along with jazz and blues music at night. Both services have been streamed live on the Internet since 2001.

Location Frequency Call sign Format
Honolulu 88.1 FM KHPR Classical music, News and Information
89.3 FM KIPO News and Information, jazz (evening)
Wailuku 89.7 FM KIPM News and Information, jazz (evening)
90.7 FM KKUA Classical music, News and Information
Hilo, Hawaii 91.1 FM KANO Classical music, News and Information
Hana, Hawaii 88.3 FM KIPH News and Information, jazz (evening)

There are also two low-power translator stations that fill in gaps in coverage:

  • K203EL at 88.5 MHz, serving Haleiwa and Schofield Barracks
  • K234AN at 94.7 MHz, serving Waimea on the Big Island

In addition, HPR also transmits on Oceanic Time Warner Cable digital channels 864 and 865 for the entire state of Hawaii.

Until September 2008, the signal of KIPO was limited to 3,000 watts to avoid interference with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) monitoring stations in Pearl City. This effectively limited its coverage to the south shore of Oahu. A new 26,000 watt transmitter for KIPO went on the air on September 20, 2008, enabling the signal of KIPO to reach all areas of Oahu. Plans are in the works to expand the HPR-2 stream to the other islands as well. In April 2011 KIPM in Wailuku signed as KIPO's satellite outlet.

Famous quotes containing the word stations:

    I can’t quite define my aversion to asking questions of strangers. From snatches of family battles which I have heard drifting up from railway stations and street corners, I gather that there are a great many men who share my dislike for it, as well as an equal number of women who ... believe it to be the solution to most of this world’s problems.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    After I was married a year I remembered things like radio stations and forgot my husband.
    P. J. Wolfson, John L. Balderston (1899–1954)

    A reader who quarrels with postulates, who dislikes Hamlet because he does not believe that there are ghosts or that people speak in pentameters, clearly has no business in literature. He cannot distinguish fiction from fact, and belongs in the same category as the people who send cheques to radio stations for the relief of suffering heroines in soap operas.
    Northrop Frye (b. 1912)
