KHSU is assisting a community coalition led by The Ink People Center for the Arts to bring a Spanish language radio station to Humboldt County.  Radio station KIPE (89.7 FM) is broadcasting from a transmitter in Pine Hills.  In addition to technical advice and engineering support, KHSU will be providing KIPE with BBC programming and access to the Emergency Alert System until the new station can complete arrangements for its own programs.
