It’s KO Peak in Pacific County, Washington.September 24, 2015 at 10:43 pm #14220
That is what I meant to type, not KOKO peak. 🙂September 25, 2015 at 1:33 am #14222
Selling KOIN to another owner sounds like a good business move. I think it would help KOIN ratings and cash flow. If it where to becoming a sister station to KIRO in Seattle. KIRO is currently owned by Cox Media Group. KGW/KING and KATU/KOMO have been longtime sister stations in Northwest for years.September 25, 2015 at 2:17 am #14224
Yes, it was Fisher & King Broadcasting for many years in the NW.September 25, 2015 at 9:37 am #14232jr_techParticipant
KO Peak… Ah thanks! I found a list that shows several Amateur repeaters at that location… what else is there? Microwave relay station to the coast, or is the Ch 12 translator for the Astoria area also there?September 25, 2015 at 12:08 pm #14233
I know KPTV uses a cel tower at KO Peak, but I am not sure where the translators for Gray’s River are located, but in the area somewhere. 2,6,8,and 10 are located there. Yes, Megler picks up the signal from KO Peak and we get the signals along the coast. Most are microwaved, if not all. It keeps the signal much more stable, than the OTA signal.October 1, 2015 at 10:23 am #14372JbpdxParticipant
It’s October. I think at this point the Laff and Escape deal is dead.October 1, 2015 at 12:13 pm #14374
With Media General now merging with Meredith, that may be changing things too.October 7, 2015 at 4:26 pm #14531StephenParticipant
Well I don’t know the time, but sometime today laff and escape were added. So much for our theories.

I will say Cozi TV does looks better, after equipment upgrade.October 9, 2015 at 1:05 pm #14590
So they added Escape. I scanned here Oregon Coast and we are temporarily getting the OTA signal from KPTV, with a piece of equipment that died and now KPTV 12.1, COZI 12.2, and Laff 12.3. Unfortunately by Dec we will go back to KPTV/KPDX. In the future I guess the Encoder will be replaced giving us the sub channels. Time will tell. But getting Laff and Cozi for now is great.Thanks for the update!October 11, 2015 at 12:58 am #14621
Of all of the sub’s I get probably OPB Plus & METV look the best, at least here on the coast. It will be a shame though when KPTV switches us back to KPTV/KPDX from the KPTV/Cozi/Laff. I am sure many here on the coast will miss Cozi and Laff. By what the engineer (Mike) told me, in time we will get the subs permanently, but it will be sometime as they are not in any hurry to replace the Encoder. Not at $100K. My question is, at $100K, is an Encoder really worth that much? Broadcast equipment has always been expensive, but that seems crazy.October 11, 2015 at 9:56 pm #14647Jeffrey KoppParticipant
49.2 is on the air.October 12, 2015 at 1:00 pm #14657
Thanks. Hopefully KPTV/KPDX can have all of their subs in time to their translators.October 13, 2015 at 10:33 pm #14714
Now that Katz Broadcasting Diginets Laff and Espace are broadcasting on KPTV/KPDX (Along with Grit on KUNP-LP). Here is web article from TV News Check site.
We might be seeing more diginets from Katz in the future.
