    It’s an LPFM but I thought they’d moved to a different frequency. That might be a translator.

    >>Incidentally, 103.3 in Olympia has a retro-KGHO running oldies..

    My buddies on Macadam were just talking about that. K103 had a loyal little cell of car-radio listeners up there, who’ve been quite unhappy with the intrusion, which began last summer or fall.

    Oh yeah, K103 has lost quite a bit of bonus coverage! I think in general Chehalis hears K103 and Centralia hears KGHO. I was surprised the first time I heard another signal on 103.3 and I figured CC Portland couldn’t be too happy about it.

    I don’t think Clear Channel management cares about K103 being blocked out in the Olympia area.

    KGHO, now that is a set of calls I have not heard in a while. Its nice to see they are back on the air but on a LPFM this time which is kind of a shame. I remember this from being on 920 AM about 10 years ago on a station that was running AM stereo and proud of it. They had it in their top of the hour ID “Our dial position, 920 AM stereo” and perhaps in their logos too. Even during the stunt as AM stereo 920 The Boom in 2003 it was prominent in their IDs.

    KGHO may well be an LPFM but for several miles of I-5 they sure don’t sound like one!

    In the low powered FM world, height can definitely make up for wattage. Boy, can it ever! 10 watts, 2100+ feet HAAT. Weird combination- makes for a paper thin signal, but when it’s clear, it’s amazing how far it will go. I caught it on a fluke in Richmond Beach (North of Seattle); that has to be 50+ miles.

    I wonder if the pirate is still on 101.1 in Olympia? Guess I’ll find out in a couple of days as I’ll be passing through there on my way to Vancouver Island.

    I’m hearing KJR-FM riffed Heidi May (middays) and Randy Lundquist (PM drive)…but it’s not official until Craig posts the All Access story. 😀

    Wow, KJR-FM really seems to be stepping up the game. Not only doing a favorable PPM music format, but doing it with big personalities. Reminds me of a time decades ago.
