Station back on-air
Though off-air for quite a while with issues ranging from signal strength to ice storm issues and lightning, as of Summer 2009, the station is on-air, 24 hours a day and at full-strength.
The station's coverage area is, as their slogan goes, from "Big Sky to Blackfoot" and it is one of very few stations available through the entirety of Yellowstone National Park and the only station most car scanners will stick on.[original research?]
On September 9, 2016 KOUW switched to a simulcast of news/talk-formatted KID 590 AM Idaho Falls.
