The new location has to be within 3 miles of our present spot on the fire station’s tower. An application will go in any day for Bolton Hill, a 40ft tower above the water reservoir, southwest of Veneta. We would have preferred Richardson Point (AKA Knight Hill), where channel 59 once was, but owners of the site weren’t interested.
Congrats to KOCF for getting their CP approved. I plotted the new contour (60dBu), . The higher tower coupled with 60 watts reaches Alvadore. Fans with directional antennae in Eugene should hear it unless they reside “in The Gut”.
I don’t know why the drop to 60 watts if it’s only at 38 meters HAAT. I asked our station manager to inquire, but haven’t heard back. I’m directly east of “the gut” and can just barely hear it now on a Sony HD tuner. I don’t expect a major improvement at my location., 60, or 100 watts.
