Sorry for posting this one in the wrong section … but… No surprise! KDZR Portland is for sale. The listing appeared publically in radiotvdeals.com today. $750,000 cash gets you a 10kw day/ 1kw night omnidirectional on 1640kHz.I think this one is diplexed off the 1330 kHz Mt Scott arrangement… Typically stations now go for 10% to 25% below asking price….
Salem has been offloading a number of underperforming or redundant AM properties. In DC they sold off 1260kHz tp a Catholic gorup for a song.. Downsizing I suspect…November 7, 2019 at 4:49 pm #43217
Just for the record; stations on/off
KOXI-CD (Vir20, RF20) has been and remains off the air since October 28th.
KNMT (Vir24, RF32) has been and remains 25 dB below its normal amplitude since October 17th.
KOIN and KATU’s new transmitters now show a nearly ideal spectrum on my low gain antenna. Their power still moves up and down more than normal. Both seem to have extraordinarily clean adjacent channel emissions.

I have a TV nerd question: when did the RF channel 5 translator for KPXG go off the air? I first noted that I could not receive it from Hillsboro (reception used to be stable in the past), and fccinfo.com no longer lists it.November 26, 2019 at 11:00 am #43381jr_techParticipant
Strange, it is still listed on the FCC site:
I think it was turned off when antenna work at Sylvan begain.November 26, 2019 at 12:00 pm #43382
I believe that “LP” refers to analog. Maybe’ they’re constructing the digital channel now. What is their virtual channel?November 26, 2019 at 12:16 pm #43384jr_techParticipant
But in the description it says:
“Licensee: KRCW, LLC
Service Designation: LD Digital Low Power Television station (Digital LPTV)
Transmit Channel: 5 76 – 82 MHz Licensed
Virtual Channel: (viewer sees this channel number)”
Indeed it did transmit digital before it was turned off, I think it indicated ch 32.November 26, 2019 at 3:10 pm #43387BorderblasterParticipant
So how’s that 98.1 classic KING “dx” workin’ out for ya!

A new DTV signal has appeared on RF ch.21. By all appearances, it should be KPXG-LD. However, since it is 35 dB lower in amplitude than KPXG-TV’s signal on RF ch.22, I have been unable to decode it. The new signal and KPXG-TV’s signal gain and fade together as my antenna is rotated so the two signals are apparently located in the same area.

On the day after Christmas (12/26) KPXG-TV filed notice with the FCC that it had returned to the air, but at reduced power.
The measured ~35 dB below KPXG-TV’s 1 MW indicates KPXG-LD’s ERP is about 350 Watts. The station is licensed for 15 kW ERP.

KXET 1130 AM. Hey, if anyone cares and knows someone at KXET, their 3rd harmonic is signal strength S4 tonight and the signal strength on the assigned carrier frequency is 40 dB over S9 on a 0 dB gain antenna at Keizer. FCC says nighttime power is 490W, so the 40 over seems pretty hot from Mt Angel. I tried calling the two phone numbers I could find to speak with a board op or someone, but no answers.December 28, 2019 at 1:48 am #43565
Gee, double whammy, power and pattern; CKWX is going to love them!

Dan, time to lock this one down.December 29, 2019 at 1:34 am #43574
I think it best to continue this one through the end of the year, in case future scholars need to find something. This way, it’ll be the correct year. 🙂December 31, 2019 at 10:53 am #43612
