    Just after applying to license its new facilities KWXS 107.7 has applied to increase power from 800 watts to 2.5KW. This will put their 70dbu contour through the center of Bend, which is currently within 60dbu but 70 misses it completely. I’m surprised that such a small increase makes so much difference!

    Notice that to get the extra power KWXS is proposing forcing “the un-built CP… KBDF on Channel 299A at Diamond Lake, Oregon” from 107.7A to 98.1A.

    Bend’s “Power 94” has some great new imaging on the air!

    What programming would they put on KWXS? Any ideas? I think they have just about every format you can think of in the FM dial, except for Sports, Talk, Jazz and Spanish

    It looks like there’s going to be another station in Goldendale, a Class A on 95.9. About half of The Dalles should be within the 60dbu contour but the other half will be missed completely!

    Bend will have a new C2 at 106.5, and the LPFM in Sisters will need to find a new frequency.

    Once KLTW moves to 95.7, there will be an opening for a new 94.9 in Bend.

    I drove by Diamond Lake about 24 hours ago, and heard a very distorted sounding 107.7 KBDF playing American Top 40 with Casey Kasem from the 70’s. The signal could only be heard for a few miles.

    FCC Proposes $25,000 Fine Against Pacific Empire Radio Corp. For Public File Violations


    The FCC has proposed a $25,000 fine against PACIFIC EMPIRE RADIO CORP. for public file rule violations at Talk KLBM-A and Classic Rock KUBQ (CLASSIC ROCK 98.7)/LA GRANDE, OR; Talk KBKR-A/BAKER, OR; and Oldies “BOOMER RADIO 95.9 AND 105.9” simulcast KKBC-F/BAKER, OR and KRJT/ELGIN, OR.

    An inspection found that the stations’ files did not contain quarterly issues/programs lists from the third quarter of 2008 through the second quarter of 2011. The fine was reduced from the statutory $10,000 per station due to a history of overall compliance with the rules and the likelihood that all the lists would have been similar due to the stations sharing a single market.

    The 106.5 application appears to show the same coverage as the one for 107.7.
