KNXR Studio The KNXR Radio Studios, at 1620 Greenview Drive SW, in Rochester, MN.
KNXR Studio Another view, except from above, so you can appreciate this unique building.
Master Control, is often run by Amanda Heller.  She is working under the watchful eye of KNXR Owner Tom Jones.  No, he is not the Tom Jones singer you might be thinking of.  However, Tom is a stickler for audio quality.  
In the Main Studio is Announcer Charlie Smart.  Yes, that is right, it is a two-person live operation to keep KNXR Radio on the air and sounding great.  
Here is one production audio suite where audio is tailored to perfection.
Another production console.  This is a vital part of this quality facility.
Here is your intrepid Radio Broadcast Engineer, Mark Persons, at the KNXR Radio transmitter doing tests with his Agilent N9340B RF Spectrum Analyzer.
A Tektronix 1503 Time Domain Reflectometer was used to check the transmission line for problems.  The work never ends.
Aaron Manthei is a long-time employee of KNXR Radio.  Here he is tightening hardware at the transmitter output. The feed line to the antenna is Andrew 5-inch Heliax. 

At this time, KNXR Radio does not have a Web site.  Owner Tom Jones is very concentrated on giving listeners the best possible audio.  As a result, he has not taken the time to create a website.  KNXR Radio is located at 1620 Greenview Drive SW, in Rochester, MN 55902.  The telephone number is 507-288-7700.

The stories go on and on.  Stop in again sometime.  I'll leave the soldering iron on for you.
