KPLU originally broadcast from the campus of Pacific Lutheran University. The antenna was on one of the campus buildings. They transmitted with 40,000 watts using a McMartin BK-25K transmitter. Here is a picture from the KPLU xmtr room:
The latest Radio World has a feature on the new KING-FM facility.
For those not in range of Channel 26’s flea power signal:
26.1 The 24 hour Church of Jimmy
26.2 Another shopping channel…
26.3 ACE TV
26.4 Heartland (Re-boot of the old Nashville Network)
Alfredo, that was the former KGON, KWJJ, KPDQ, KBOO, etc site.
Here is a photo I captured from the DJ Master Control blog.
Crawford Broadcasting’s engineering newsletter, The Local Oscillator, has a nice historical write up on the KKPZ site on Mt. Scott. It includes a nice photo of the KPOJ transmitter room.
KJYY seems to be consistently transmitting SBN, Sonlight Broadcasting Network (operated by Jimmy Swaggart) on 26.1 and a shopping channel on 26.2.
They activated 4 sub channels. 3 are black with 26.2 running a shopping channel.May 1, 2018 at 10:33 am in reply to: LPFM Portland Metro Review: Licensed-CP's-Applications #36500
KLLD-LP seems to be transmitting now from their new location in the NW industrial area of Portland. Modulation seems really low. I am seeing peaks at +/- 45 kHz.
John White, KKPZ CE says KUIK has lost it’s transmitter site and it unlikely to return to the air.
Ch 26 is back on in Portland. They are carrying, along with sister ch 21 in Salem, the Dove Network from Medford.March 3, 2017 at 12:06 pm in reply to: LPFM Portland Metro Review: Licensed-CP's-Applications #27664
Just heard XRAY-FM add KXWR Vancouver to their top of hour ID.
We thought we could make an 11 gHz microwave hop work between Swan Island and Mt. Scott. Couldn’t pan it in. One of the Fremont Bridge supports was in the way.
I’m hearing it on Swan Island.
The translator is now on the air. 97.5. Read the story and see a nice picture here:http://crawfordbroadcasting.com/Local_Oscillator/November%202016%20Local%20Oscillator.pdf
