    According to the FCC’s website for the stations available in my area at 96.7 is K244FG, and K264AA at 100.7, both licensed to Salem. Anyone know if these are translators or boosters for another station? Never heard of such music on any two of these frequencies.

    Any ID that is composed of a single letter (K or W) followed by three numbers and two letters is a translator. K264AA repeats KMUZ, Turner. K244FG repeats KRKT-FM, Albany.

    Boosters have a -1 or -2 (etc) following the root call sign e.g. WABX-1

    On a trip south yesterday, 96.7 had a better signal than 100.7 in Beaverton, down 217 to I-5. 96.7 lasted longest but both were fading to the point of being unlistenable by the time I got to I-5.

    About six months ago, 96.7 briefly tested with dance music. The signal in Hillsboro was fairly good at that time.

    What ever happened to 880 kHz KWIP-AM – Salem?

    KWIP also now has an FM translator at 103.9FM that reaches Salem.

    I can get the KWIP 103.9 FM translator faintly if I point my antenna in a certain angle. But there’s a lot of white noise due to it broadcasting in stereo. 880 AM i’m able to receive very very clear, during the day and night.

    I notice that the FM signal from the translator is about a second or more behind the AM… How are they feeding the translator? The 103.9 translator is quite receivable in Hillsboro, using an outside FM Log-Yagi and Sony F1HD tuner.

    STL link between Dallas studios and Independence Mountain (more like a hill).

    Something broke. KWIP RFO skywave component has always been large (antenna too short) but it’s bad now. Used to be near dusk KWIP be all up in KIXI – Bellevue back yard.
    Now, opposite is true.

    Slaps forehead! Of course, they are running STEREO on the FM translator, so they can’t be taking it off the air from AM 880. Latency from a digital STL would explain the time lag.

    Isn’t the translator on Prospect Hill?

    Barix? 5.4 gHz?
    An ISM band. Someone with certain knowledge and a RC drone would create havoc 15 minutes at a time.
