    This from All Access:

    In technical filings, WALLOWA VALLEY RADIO has applied to move KWVR-A/ENTERPRISE, OR to a new site after losing its current location, which the licensee says is too small for a standard 90 degree ground system and which the owner intends to subdivide and sell.

    KWVR’s transmitter site is on Golf Course Rd.

    The occupant of 94.1 has applied to move to 92.9, soon to be replaced by a newly downgraded 94.1, which I believe is moving from 92.7 but don’t quote me.

    We have discussed the 92.9/94.1 issue in other threads. 94.3 KZPT’s move to Government Camp is forcing KXIX (Bend) to move from 94.1 to the less ideal 92.9. This forces 92.7 KRXF (Sunriver) to move to 94.1.

    I know but they just applied this week.

    94.1 KXIX “Power 94” will not be moving after all. It will be less “Power”…but still on 94.1 (which will be licensed to Sunriver.) The Bend Radio Group made a wise decision, keeping KXIX on it’s heritage, interference-free frequency. As a C2 on 94.1, the KXIX signal will still reach into Washington and Eastern Oregon. Meanwhile, “92/7 FM” KRXF will get a nice coverage boost by switching to 92.9, as a C0. With this move, KRXF will no longer bump into The Dalles’ 92.7 KMSW, Burns’ 92.7 KQHC, or Newport’s 92.7 KNCU.

    This sounds questionable at the eleventh hour. It seems more likely that the new occupant of 94.1 will keep it’s call letters and KXIX will change to something else on 92.9.

    “92/7 FM” has been promoting the upgrade to 92.9, on the air, and on their website/Facebook. They say it’s happening in one week, but haven’t given an exact date and time.

    Now it makes sense: There is a Time Brokerage Agreement in place between GCC owned KXIX and Sunriver’s KRXF, where the former provides programming for the latter, with the option to purchase at some point. Expect to see an application soon that will give GCC ownership of KRXF.

    It sounds like the “big switch” is happening on Friday. I’m guessing that 94.3 KZPT (Government Camp) will be on the air very soon.

    Yes, I’m expecting GCC to be owning both 92.9 and 94.1, in the not too distant future.

    When 94.1 powers down to a C2, most listeners around Bend, Redmond, Sisters, etc., won’t notice the difference. Of course, places like Summer Lake, Mt. Hood, McKenzie Bridge, and other fringe reception areas, will have a noticably weaker signal.

    Don’t think that will happen for a while with the Bustos reorganization.

    Seems like it would be easy to plug in one of Bustos’ crap quality satellite feeds into the 94.3 KZPT transmitter.

    “92/7 FM” is making the switch to “92/9 FM” on Sunday.

    Both 92.7 and 94.1 are running at low power right now.

    According to a column in Radio-Info, 94.3 and 1130 are outside the reorg, held in a separate company (Bustos Media *Holdings* LLC) which retains some CA stations under the same umbrella.

    “92/7 FM” ended up switching to “92/9 FM” (KRXF, Bend) last night (7/10) around 9 PM.

    94.1 (KXIX, Sunriver) had very over-modulated audio, over the weekend.
