Gettysburg is about 49 miles north of the South Dakota state capital of Pierre and is the county seat of Potter County. The main economy of Gettysburg revolves around farming and agri-business. Recreational sports such as fishing, hunting, and boating are very popular in this area.
The Moody Satellator here was originally built from a special project fund at Grace Community Church in the early 1990s. Grace Community Church continues to financially support this Moody Satellator. The Gettysburg Satellator covers much of Potter County and also reaches into northern Sully County. The Moody Radio signal also reaches Lebanon, about 10 miles to the northeast, and Agar, about 12 miles southwest. In early 2012, the Gettysburg Satellator moved from its original frequency of 90.7 FM to its current frequency of 90.1 FM.
