KILO features a current active rock format. The station is known for playing new bands well before many other stations will add them to their playlist and is usually one of the higher rated stations in Colorado Springs, always in the top five. Rich Hawk, who programmed the station for 27 years is widely considered one of the "fathers of active rock". On March 7, 2013 Rich Hawk died after falling into a coma in February.
The Pure Rock Panel is a "fan club" of sorts. It is used to inform its members of concerts and new releases, and to get feedback about the station.
During the winter months, the station organises ski trips to the nearby Monarch Ski Area.
The KILO website, in addition to providing information about the shows and presenters, gives details of upcoming concerts in the Colorado area, as well as weather reports and traffic information. It is also possible to listen to the station via the website.
These attack submarines are mainly intended for anti-shipping and anti-submarine operations in relatively shallow waters. Original Project 877 boats are equipped with Rubikon MGK-400 sonar system (with NATO reporting name Shark Gill), which includes a mine detection and avoidance sonar MG-519 Arfa (with NATO reporting name Mouse Roar).
Newer Project 636 boats are equipped with improved MGK-400EM, with MG-519 Arfa also upgraded to MG-519EM. The improved sonar systems have reduced the number of operators needed by sharing the same console via automation.
Anechoic tiles are fitted on casings and fins to absorb the sound waves of active sonar, which results in a reduction and distortion of the return signal. These tiles also help attenuate sounds that are emitted from the submarine, thus reducing the range at which the sub may be detected by passive sonar.
