Is KTMT-FM 93.7 (93.7 NOW-FM)changing their formats?
Speaking of KDOO-LP. Why did KDOO-LP moving their transmitter from Rocky Butte to low lying area near SE 151st Ave and SE Powell Blvd? They will lost lots of listenership.
I know this is a radio board, but it’s related to Bend, Oregon.
Just out of curiosity, I know Bend, Oregon has it own tv market (KOAB PBS 3, KBNZ-LD CBS 7, KOHD ABC 18, KFXO-LD FOX 39). Can Portland tv stations (KATU ABC 2, KOIN CBS 6, KGW NBC 8, KPTV FOX 12, KRCW CW 32 and KPDX MNT 49) be able to picked up OTA signal in Bend Oregon via translators? If so, it is easy or hard to picked them up?
Just of out curiosity, is this the FM transmitter for KFFD-LP 98.3?
Is there a Spanish Contemporary (Pop/Rock en Espanol) format in Portland. I can’t stand Regional Mexican music format.

Speaking of the old channel 27. Why did KHTV failed? Did manufactures at that time have both VHF/UHF turner for Portland tv market? I know from 1959 to 1981. Portland tv market was VHF only until KECH 22 signed on in 1981.
Do you think Fox Television Stations will buy KPTV/KPDX Portland, KVVU Henderson/Las Vegas, WALA Mobile AL/Pensacola FL?
What about K283BL translator?
I wonder if Bustos is going to get K283BL (104.5) translator as well as KXXP White Salmon/Portland?
Speaking of Spanish language radio format, we don’t have Spanish Language sports radio (Tudn) Spanish contemporary music (Shakira, Mana, Jessy and Joy, Luis Fonsi), Spanish Rhythmic Hits (Bad Bunny, Nicky Jams, Maluma,J. Balvin) in the Portland area. Only Regional Mexican and Spanish Christian radio format.

Just out of curiosity. Speaking of the Northern Oregon Coast. I was looking at the rabbitears.info data and plug in KBTC and KCKA the PBS station in Tacoma and Centralia WA. If you lived in Astoria and Warrenton Or, is it possible to picked up KBTC over there from their translator in Grays River, WA? Also for people living in Longview/Kelso area and Vancouver, WA area? Is it possible to pick up KCKA-TV up there?
Maybe KJYY-LD Ch 26 can change their channel and relocate their transmitter to the west hills instead of Mt. scott to have a better coverage for the westside of Portland.
I wonder if KRRM will upgrade to either Class C2 or Class C and able to serve the entire Rouge Valley area all the way down to Ashland, Or?
