    Thanks for the complete update. KCYS is back on the air today with Country as stated, IDs are something like C96, Clatsop County Country station.

    rebranded “The Rock” and two years later is the No.1 Nielsen-rated radio station in the county

    Show your work, Mr. Jacobs. Astoria-Seaside isn’t a Nielsen market, and the last Eastlan was spring 2018.

    This morning (6:15am) KCUP over-the-air is carrying Christmas tunes while the web-stream is rock-music. Obviously some technical issues…

    If it’s February it must be Christmas somewhere…. KCUP is still stunting holiday music on 1230 AM . Their Internet stream is carrying the much-promised talk format. Someone needs to bounce a Barix box in Toledo.

    All the websites for Yaquina Bay Radio appear down for many days now. KBCH and KWDP seem to be carrying the same content too. I know KNPT’s talk show feeds took a hit for a few days but have now returned. What’s the latest with phantom KYTE? One can only imagine…

    KYTE still broadcasting from Newport

    I wonder how Jacobs manages to make any money. The Stanfield and Condon signals feed Tri-Cities translators, and the Royal City one feeds translators in the Tri-Cities and Wenatchee, but still.

    Apparently a second party (Vincent Shiflet) based in Kennewick owns the non-fill-in translators for Jacobs’ KWDR in Royal City, a little Class A, importing the signals into the Tri-Cities and Wenatchee areas. Shiflet also relays Jacobs’ KWCO Condon into the Tri-Cities.(Shiflet’s third Tri-Cities translator is K237DP…perhaps carrying EMF)

    Correction: I meant to say “KWCQ” Condon. Per the last filing K237DP was carrying Jacob’s KLKY “U Rock” out of Stanfield (Hermiston).

    I suspect Tri-Cities is a more profitable market than the Northwest Oregon Coast.

    Btw, Jacobs worked for me as a teen in the 90’s. I knew him to be a very gifted air talent, but also very smart as has been proven by his business acumen. Congrats, Jeff.

    KCUP seems to be in talk-format mode. I even heard an OAB-sponsored PSA. Hopefully the owner can find some advertising to keep the (tower) lights on.

    It’s good to hear AM 840 KSWB’s audio stream back up on the Internet. It’s at kswbradio.com .

    That’s much more than can be said for the KCYS’s web presence at this point.

    I think at least in Clatsop County people listen to FM or a stream. Streaming seems to be more popular than it used to be

    I did find this semi-interesting 2016 video clip of Jeff Jacobs launching his KWDR station (102.3 Tri-Cities translator). The station has since switched formats to “Tri Country 102.3).
