    About a week ago, I could hear KOHI at Hadley’s Landing on Sauvie Island (across the Multnomah Channel from where Cornelius Pass Road intersects Highway 30.)

    CKXM 1200 Victoria BC gave up its AM frequency and flipped to FM in May 2000. It is now CJZN-FM 91.3. An entirely new station, CJRJ 1200 Vancouver BC, went on the air in Dec 2007 (some sources give the date as Nov 2006.)

    In September 1960, Market-Casters of Oregon (a subsidiary of Market-Casters of Washington, owner of FM station KCMS in Seattle) was given a construction permit for a Portland FM station on 102.7 mHz. They eventually were assigned the call letters KMCP but I don’t think the station ever got on the air.

    I grew up listening to Pat O’Day and KJR in the Sixties. I gained even more appreciation for O’Day after I read his memoir, “It Was All Just Rock-‘n’-Roll II; A Return to the Center of the Radio & Concert Universe” (Ballard Publishing, Inc., 2003). It is an insightful, engrossing read. Highly recommended.

    KRAB had some of the most bizarre programs ever heard on radio. I didn’t appreciate the station much when I was a teenager living in the Seattle area. I almost always tuned past KRAB as quickly as possible on the way to KOL-FM 94.1 or KISW 99.9 and their rock formats.

    You can find reports of reception of Asian AM stations (including many from Pacific Northwest DXers) at the International Radio Club of America board:

    The Chinese language station on 690 is undoubtedly XEWW-AM, a powerful Tijuana, Mexico, station that broadcasts to the Southern California market.

    When conditions are right, on 690 you can also hear CBKF1 Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan. It is a member of the CBC French language “Premiere Chaine” network.

    It sounds kind of strange to hear English, Chinese and French all at the same time on one frequency.

    With KBPS off, I’m hearing the following stations fade in and out:

    KONP Port Angeles WA with the Seattle Mariners post-game show and local PA commercials.

    KSUH Puyallup WA with Korean language programming.

    Unidentified station programming George Noory’s “Coast to Coast AM” show.

    Unidentified country music station (maybe KEED Eugene or KCLX Colfax WA.)

    There are possibly other stations far underneath the four stations described above.

    I’m listening on a Panasonic RF-2200.

    A friend of mine is interested in your collection. How can he contact you? I didn’t see an email in your profile.

    I received an email from Gerald Gaule and he asked me to pass this on:

    “I have not or have been on any frequency since the visit from Binh who was kind, I volunteered to surrender my Talking House II 5.0 model which I did not modify or add a ground, the antenna transmitter was laying on the floor, I am not sure why to this day that some or whom ever thinks that I am remotely involved with any activity that is taking place, I am simply asking that assumption to be stopped, it is not me nor ever has been me, I simply shut it down in front of him, signed the paperwork he did not take the transmitter, which I gave it away, so again please stop assuming just because this is going on it is me, Thank You.”

    This report on the 1999 UK total solar eclipse gives some idea of what to expect here:

    KNRK 94.7 was not broadcasting in HD this morning which allowed me to hear stations on the adjacent channels. I picked up KIOK 94.9 Richland WA IDing as “Everything Country. The Wolf.” Angling the antenna in another direction brought in KUOW-FM 94.9 Seattle with public radio programming. Also heard KLYK 94.5 Kelso WA. All this on an Insignia NS-HDRAD with a built-in whip antenna.

    Translator K240CZ 95.9 Tigard seems to be off the air this morning. I’m picking up KRSX Goldendale WA with CHR format and “95.9 Star FM” IDs. First time heard here.

    Glad to hear it. When Miles and Steve are “on” there is nobody funnier.
