    “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!” This application has now been granted.

    Doug Donoho And KLRR Part Ways


    After more than two decades at the PD helm, DOUG DONOHO has exited his post at COMBINED COMMUNICATIONS Triple A KLRR (CLEAR 101.7 )/BEND, OR due to budget cuts. No one has been named to replace him at this time and it is not even clear the station will remain the format.

    “It has been 22 wonderful years at CLEAR 101.7 and I am sad, but excited at the same time about the possibilities that lie ahead,” said DONOHO. Reach him at dldonoho@gmail.com.

    KWXS’s recent application has been granted. This should put about half of Bend within the 70dbu contour.

    KBDF Diamond Lake has filed for their move from 107.7 to 98.1 to make room for the KWXS upgrade. No change in power or antenna.

    Bend’s “Lite 95.1” (KLTW) will become “Lite 95.7” tomorrow, broadcasting from Awbrey Butte. This will create a mess in the Crater Lake area, where KLTW will clash with Medford’s 95.7 KBOY. KLTW will also mix with Walla Walla’s “Cities 95.7” KKSR in North Central Oregon.

    Yup! they changed, I am hearing them fade in and out from Hillsboro with my antenna pointed SE. Got a clear ID… My first time log for this station. 🙂
