    The last couple of times that I’ve been down in Salem I’ve been able to hear K275CH on 102.9. While down there today I noticed the KPIK-LP is back on the air.

    It looks as if they have a CP to move to a lower elevation site, increase power and change frequency to 92.7:

    Still, I doubt that I will ever be able to Dx them again from Hillsboro, like in the “good olde days”:

    Hopefully once I get the FM6 up, I can try for some LP FM’s. There are quite a few up the coast in the Aberdeen WA area. About 50 miles away. I have heard and QSL’d 10 watt translators from Sask and Ut from back in the 70s.

    I use Global Tuners Eugene and i heard music on 102.9 instead of KUGN AM. Was i hearing KPIK?

    Bumper music, maybe? The KUGN translator is temporarily at extremely low power from the AM tower and is not heard clearly anywhere. At my location it’s just strong enough to block out anything else, but you might have heard KSJJ (Country) from Redmond, or KYNW (hits), Centralia. KPIK is highly unlikely.

    Another signal to try for is a pirate at 95.7 playing reggae, or sometimes hits en espanol. The signal is strongest in NW Springfield and they have better coverage than the KUGN translator, but still lots of multipath.

    KOMO FM 97.7 was really strong yesterday. I need to save some cash and find a GE Super Radio.
