The revised RF exposure report shows the likely cause of the power drop – the adjacent building’s second-floor storage area will experience RF just a few points below the legal limit at 3kw. At the former power level the exposure budget failed. No call letters yet but it’s obviously a quick buildout.
Definitely can’t rimshot the Tri-Cities and barely Hermiston with that power/class downgrade.
Bet it can be moved NNE to between Boardman & Tri Cities. Up on the hills so no RFR issues or power reductions. It would be in the clear of co-channel KCLK Clarkston, second adjacent 93.9 KTAC Ephrata, and the 3rd adjacents 94.5 KATS Yakima & 93.7 KQFM Hermiston. But a poor rimshot unless they can move others around.
A good time killer is trying to make 94.1 work as a C3 rimshot to the Tri-Cities or to its northeast. I never could extract a do’able tower site, even “greenfield” to clear the ridgeline.. Stations in Yakima and Seattle area begin to encroach the separation limits. What Xana HD did was smart; at best a 15kw C3 on Golgotha Butte might have grabbed 50,000 pop count but it likely was nof worth the hassle for them… A smart downgrade indeed…
