Engineering Star

Grey-haired, bearded man, holding tools, stands over large, illuminated star inside maintenance shop adorned with tools and shelves.

He’s a star.

Longtime volunteer engineer Les Brown was back in Nome earlier this spring for a variety of fix-it and maintenance jobs at the station.

The brightest of his accomplishments was rebuilding the KNOM Christmas star, which will shine over Nome next winter, atop the FM tower.
