The History of KJAB Christian Radio
From 1986 to 1999, KJAB, also known as The Master's Radio, broadcasted at 380 watts at a frequency of 90.1 FM. In March 1999, we became the largest Christian radio station to broadcast Gospel bluegrass and Southern Gospel music in our area when we raised our power to 6000 watts on a 130' tower.
Then in February of 2005, we moved to a 320' tower and changed our power to 4,800 watts. Although our wattage was less, the tower height has expanded our signal greatly to reach more listeners with the best in Southern and Bluegrass Gospel as well as children's programming, Christian talk radio, Bible preaching and daily prayer time.
In 2008, we began streaming live online at www.kjab.com. The Master's Radio can now be heard anywhere in the world that has internet!
100,000 Watts Of Gospel Power
In May of 2013, we upgraded our signal to an unprecedented 100,000 watts reaching a potential listening audience of 1.7 million people with the Gospel message. Although this has substantially increased our monthly power bill, through God's grace we have continued to boldly proclaim God's message of salvation to the people of Central Missouri.
KJAB at 88.3 FM now provides a clear signal from St. Charles to Kirksville and everywhere in between. Central Missouri cities that we reach include: Fulton, Jefferson City, Macon, Hannibal, Holts Summit, Moberly, Montgomery City, Vandalia, parts of Columbia and many other communities.
