I just noticed on the “LaRadiodePortland.com” Bustos website that the “La Pantera” logo now reflects both “93.3 FM and 940 AM”. (Absent now in the logo is KXET 1130 although the programming is still carried there. No changes in ToH IDs noted.)
The new 93.3 callsign is K227DU (ex-K228FN) and was granted by the FCC on 5/14.
Has the new 93.3 FM translator now launched from Prospect Hill?
“Interesting article in the Salem Reporter about the origins of 1490 in Salem.”
KSLM 1934 (according to the article). That is the same year as the F.C.C. was formed and the rules totally revamped. A lot of legacy AM stations came on the air in that year and the next, since licenses were now protected from someone putting up a more powerful co channel operation right next door.
Subtle observation: Perhaps it was just a webdesigner reloading an old logo but the “La Pantera” entry at LaRadiodePortland.com reverted to the old graphic that simply states “La Pantera 940”. The “93.3” piece now has been omitted.
BTW, the last modification aligned the K227DU 93.3 coverage with the KWBY AM contour limits – a little more signal in Dallas, less in Monmouth.
