    It appears that KRVM-AM-HD is not coming back. Likewise for KLCC-HD2.

    KKNX 840 AM is a very interesting throwback to the glory days of AM. Apparently they have enough billings to be comfortably profitable. I wish the station sounded better though.

    KEHK 102.3 and KNRQ 103.7 are in their 2nd month of interfering with 105.1.

    In regards to HD stations…I don’t know of anyone who has a HD receiver.

    Are they just not available or ??

    I suspect the vast majority of HD receivers are in cars. Many new cars are HD-capable. For home use the pickings are very slim.

    KRVM AM-HD is up again.

    KLCC-HD & KZEL-HD are both down. KRVM is the only Eugene HD station that’s up.

    Can anybody point me towards an investigative reporter (radio or TV) that I can hit up with a Eugene area story idea?

    In a press release about the stun, the mythical owner/PD “BOB” is quoted as saying, “Any time you have a first anything — kiss, day of pre-school, using the potty — it warrants strong consideration, and this HEISMAN is first for EUGENE and the UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. Henceforth and for the time being my station will be called “MARCUS-FM.”

    KOCF-LP, Veneta is now testing on 92.5 at 1/3 power and barely hitting west Eugene. They got on just in time for the Oregon Country Fair (thus, the “OCF” in KOCF). My Sony HD tuner with rabbit ears can sniff it out south of the U of O but it’s very weak.

    Another LPFM soon to be licensed to Jasper on 92.5 is expected soon from Quarry Hill in Springfield.

    Good riddance. K-FLY might be good calls for a hip-hop station.

    …or maybe KPNW-FM?

    KOCF has now received their license to cover. Don’t know how well the reception will be around Eugene because of Green Hill, but otherwise it’s pretty flat.

    There is some spotty reception in NW Eugene and up to Junction City, but in central and south Eugene it’s pretty much non-existent east of Greenhill Road on my Honda car radio. I can barely hear it above other noise on the frequency on my Sony HD tuner south of the U of O.

    KGEL-LP on the same frequency in Jasper, transmitting from Quarry Hill in Springfield was testing with a silent carrier on Tuesday. It’s also blocked from south Eugene by hills, but it was just strong enough to override KOCF on my Sony while still not being very listenable.
