    This from All Access:

    CALVARY CHAPEL OF TWIN FALLS, INC. has applied for a Silent STA for KPIJ/JUNCTION CITY, OR after the station went silent due to what the licensee believes was snow accumulating on the station’s satellite dish the site was inaccessible due to weather).

    I heard 94.9 and 100.5 were purchased by a Catholic broadcasting group. Silent while programming changes take place? It will be interesting to see if anyone picks up the hip hop format.

    Wow. I’d say Master got a pretty good price for a Cottage Grove station and a dinky Eugene translator.

    Anyone know what is going on with KEHK 102.3? Seems as though they’ve been off the air the last couple days (or at least a very weak signal). I noticed the last couple weeks they had no stereo signal either.

    Well since they RIF’d their engineer it’s hard to say.

    102.3 is on the air in stereo but it appears to be at reduced power, a similar level as a 23 watt translator that’s on the same stick.

    I have not been back to Eugene for many years. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there programming KDUK and KODZ in the late 90’s and early whatever you call the 2000’s. Can someone give me an overall idea of the radio market in mid-2011? Please, because I’m sadly removed from my old market…

    Star 102.3 was broadcasting only one channel in mono from July 23rd to August 19th, and was off the air during much of the day on the 18th.

    Eugene Radio is still dominated by New Country 93.3 KKNU. 104.7 KDUK is still a successful CHR with a focus on Rhythmic material. Kool 99.1 is now Classic AC, and seems to be winning the battle with 94.5 Mix FM’s more contemporary AC. Star 102.3 is gaining some traction with it’s Bright AC format. 96.1 KZEL is Classic Rock with a Triple A lean, and it’s working. Rock 97.9 KNRQ is doing well with it’s Alternative leaning Active Rock. 101.5 KFLY is a more gold-based Rock format with “Donkey Show” talk blocks. 105.5 Bob FM is still sounding solid with Adult Hits. 95.3 The Score is low rated with it’s ESPN programming, and should flip to something like Oldies or CHR.

    How about another Country station in the Eugene area to compete against KKNU NEW COUNTRY 93?

    Go for it.

    If Cumulus hadn’t come into Eugene, 97.9 would probably still be Country. 102.3 could eventually flip to Country, but Cumulus isn’t known for making wise decisions. They tried Country on 95.3, but the signal isn’t strong enough to compete with 93.3 KKNU.

    When 97.9 finally moves to Portland, they could put KNRQ back on 95.3, and turn 102.3 into “The Wolf” to compete in the Country arena. It’s also possible that KNRQ could move to 97.7, which will be a slightly stronger signal than 95.3.
