    I was in Salem on labor day. Between approx. 3-30 and 4-00 I was in a favorable location and tuned them in. They were playing oldies, interspersed with fire updates. It’s good to know I wasn’t witnessing their last few hours.

    A construction video of the new KMWV 98.3 studios and a project backgrounder now can be found at :

    I thought an entity like a community TV station was not permitted to own a non-commercial radio frequency. Are they able to skirt around that with the partnership with the Spanish group?

    CCTV is the non-profit that runs the public access TV channels for Salem-area cable systems. When cities doled out cable franchises the bidders or communities would often propose a third-party to control the public access facility.. that way the content would be free of corporate pressures..

    KBZY (1490 AM) in Salem has been off the air for two days. But you can still hear the station on the internet using the Simple Radio app.

    Over a decade ago, Portland Community Media (formerly Portland Cable Access) announced in its newsletter that it was considering launching an LPFM station. These plans never came to fruition. I have been left curious whether the stumbling block was legal in nature or whether sufficient funds and manpower weren’t available.

    The signal of KWBY sounds stronger… Did they finally upgrade or is just ground conductivity imporved thanks to the recent rains? (Bustos/Distell have one year remaining in that CP but an extension/re-filing would be easy.)
