I heard KYTE 102.7 while driving around Beaverton tonight. That tells me they must have made it to the air from the new site. I don’t think it was possible to hear them from their old stick in Beaverton.
Yep, another new mid Valley station coastal movein…just heard their new COL ID…KYTE Independence. Think they will have killer coverage from their higher site…just hope they got their AC power issues settled.
Drove around Salem…KYTE has great signal…funny to hear nothing but coastal business advertising! ID now mentions a bunch of valley cities…then the last one…Newport!
This station is one of 6 coastal stations under the group Yaquina Bay Communications in Newport. Don’t know if they have the dollars to open a sales office/studio in the valley anywhere?
“I was surprised to hear them mention Portland second!”
Westside reception is pretty good…not quite as strong as KLOO, KDUK but about the same as KHPE, KFLY, KRKT and other stronger mid valley stations. Decent reception can be obtained with a good portable or car radio, no Yagi necessary to hear them from Hillsboro.
