KQAC is moving their backup antenna to a new location. This may cause some reception differences between KQAC and KMHD.July 30, 2018 at 8:31 am #38695ScreamerParticipant
Is KQAC the station that was interfering with KORE in Eugene? Or was that a translator?July 30, 2018 at 9:15 am #38697lastdayParticipant
The stations interfering with each other on 95.7 are the KQAC translator K239BP in Flynn (which is in HD), and the KORE translator K239CM in Eugene.July 30, 2018 at 11:40 am #38708mwdxer1Participant
Even here on the Northern Oregon Coast, we are loaded with FM signal.
89.5 K208AZ (KMUN)
89.7 KOAC FM
91.3 K217FG (KMUN)
98.1 K251CD (KSWB)
100.9 K265CP (KPDQ)
104.5 K283BT (KOPB)
104.9 K265DN (KPDQ)
106.3 K292GZ (KKOR)
107.1 K296DM (KPDQ)
22 signals in our market of about 40K. That is a lot of FM. Add to that 3 AMs
KAST is the only AM without an FM translator.August 2, 2018 at 10:08 am #38757BorderblasterParticipant
Got to luv it when 88-1 KKJZ Long Beach California covers up that piece of shit KGRI this morning with RDS too boot!August 2, 2018 at 10:47 am #38759Alfredo_TParticipant
Since KPDQ appears on several translators on the coast, I take it that Gospel Echo is still in operation. Here is a page that has an interesting photo of a wind powered translator operated by Gospel Echo: http://www.oocities.org/gospelecho/August 2, 2018 at 2:27 pm #38760mwdxer1Participant
Gospel Echo is still around. Frank Furnish passed away a while back but others are running it. They had more translators at one time, but they were sold to keep the current ones operating.The NPR translators have listeners, but I wonder how many of the others do? I rarely listen to local radio these days. I either do FM Dxing or stream everything. Most young people I know around here never listen to radio. They stream from Pandora mostly. I was streaming some old Rober W. Morgan from KHJ in 1968 as well as some KFRC from the same era. Radio was so much fun then. Portland had KISN, KGW, KGAR, KGON (AM). Seattle-Tacoma-Everet had KJR, KOL, KTAC, KRKO.August 2, 2018 at 10:04 pm #38763semoochieParticipant
That’s Robert W. Morgan! Be careful; he may come out of the grave and shatter your morgan! 🙂July 7, 2020 at 7:57 pm #47067BorderblasterParticipant
Got to luv it when 88-1 translator KWOU Woodward, Oklahoma eats up that piece of shit translator KGRI Lebanon this eveningJuly 7, 2020 at 9:14 pm #47068paulwalkerParticipant
Responding to 2 year old post, but don’t forget Kgw’s sister King in Seattle. Major competitor in top 40 in the 70’s. High reaching northern directional signal reaching most of British Columbia and we once had a call from Finland!
