The station began in 1925, when Henry Field of Henry Field Seed and Nursery Co. founded radio station KFNF. Rival station KMA began the same year, founded by Earl May, owner of another seed company. Both KFNF and KMA featured farm news and country music.
The antenna array is located 3 miles north of the Iowa and Missouri border, near the town of Coin, Iowa. The system uses four 83.1 m (273 ft) towers arranged in a directional array. During daytime hours, three of the towers are used with the transmitter operating at 5,000 watts. At nighttime, all four towers are used when the transmitter power is reduced to 2,500 watts. The array provides two main lobes generally oriented northwest and southwest, ensuring coverage of the Omaha-Council Bluffs area both day and night. The array also minimizes nighttime interference to co-channel stations WGNU (Granite City, Illinois), KDHL (Faribault, Minnesota), and WOKY (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) among others.
