nosignalallnois, I made a mistake. Nobody’s perfect. You knew what I meant. You are being a jerk.
Yet it appears you still don’t have it figured out. Now you have the signal’s coverage area at 40 and the metro’s population as 4000. Just like you still haven’t figured out how to spell my handle.
FYI, I was a jerk on here years before you crawled out of the woodwork.

LPFM radio stations have no priority over FM broadcast and translator FCC frequency assignments, period.
In my knowledge, there are three LPFMs in Oregon and two in Washington in the past three years which either relocate license, city or frequency or go silent. Sunriver Broadcasting v. Sisters School District (KICE-FM v. KZSO-LP) is a flagrant example.
Unfortunately, the Portland FM market is over saturated and KIEV-LP is not a minority class broadcaster or the Church may have had a fighting chance.

KYTE-FM’s poorly promoted web audio stream seems to be static latey – they must pull the audio of-the-air. Are there still transmitter site issues?September 11, 2018 at 3:50 pm #39345cbaravelliSpectator
04 June 2018, FCC grants an STA application due to ” Required equipment out of service”. KYTE-FM is not audible during my last frequency survey. Something else may be the problem. Money? KYTE-FM continues to broadcast from the original near Newport – OR location.You could call Dave to find out.October 11, 2019 at 6:32 am #42866Steve NaganumaParticipant
Can you guess how many car rental companies use radio station call letters as their company name?November 29, 2019 at 12:12 am #43408
What is the word on KYTE? They haven’t had a working STA since last December but apparently continue to broadcast from their former main site. How can this be in compliance?December 8, 2019 at 8:40 pm #43459
Their audio stream is back up – a mix (as in potentiometer) of KCRF and KYTE , as both IDs occassionally creep through…
56kbps MP3 ….
(KYTE was originally on Port 501 and KCRF was on Port 502…)

Geez, I hope their air signal doesn’t have that awful 60Hz tone as well.January 23, 2020 at 7:52 pm #43877
It sounds like KYTE has switched to a more conservative hits format.. Still operating from tbe coastal facility and it is barely heard in Yamhill County.January 24, 2020 at 10:32 am #43890BroadwayParticipant
Wonder if their ID says “Independence”…also their TX site over PeDee Oregon is getting a little rusty…January 24, 2020 at 10:48 am #43892
It’s their licensed site. It should because it’s no longer licensed to Newport, even as an auxiliary location!March 21, 2020 at 4:45 pm #45336
Can someone confirm KYTE is now operating with 37kw ERP from their Coast Range mountain top site? If so, they should be blasting into the Willamette Valley.. When I was in Salem back in January the signal still sounded like it was from the former coastal antenna site. The former STA has longer since expired. Of course, Yaquina Bay Communications still owns the outlet.March 21, 2020 at 9:18 pm #45343Randy_in_EugeneParticipant
I was tuning around the dial yesterday in Eugene while eating take-out food in my car, and couldn’t hear it at all.March 21, 2020 at 10:06 pm #45345BroadwayParticipant
They’ve only broadcast off and on from their CP site for just a few months…then had to back to Newport due to generator power issues…think they have listed for sale? Had a great valley signal when they were on.March 22, 2020 at 1:57 am #45347
I could hear them all over the Portland area, to varying degrees. It was enough to move the Camas translator to 102.5 although they’ve since retreated to 102.7.
