    Both 710 and 770 AM are on 97.3 HD2 and 3 respectively. Much better signal and reach that most people aren’t aware of and not being marketed.

    The power line noise issue in that region is a symptom of another issue, which is the really poor ground conductivity of sand. Not so much the fault of the power lines or the PUD.

    That video does indeed show a Nautel. I was also under the impress that they had a DX-50 which is what I think was the OG 50kw rig… Seems that I remember something about a flood damaging the TX site at some point so maybe they got the Nautel with insurance money.

    50kw transmitter = $3k to 4k per month electric bill.

    Best of luck to Delilah. Let’s hope she has the deep pockets to make that work.

    When is history did we ever willingly listen to 50-60 year old music? With the possible exception of Classical, Never!

    That would be like in the 1980’s having multiple stations playing music of the 1930’s on the top signals!!

    Odd times indeed!

    Just take it to the Politics side please… There is a place for your hate here… Leave the Radio side to radio.

    Thanks! I see what you mean now… It doesn’t take much to disrupt a distant signal in the nether regions…

    I would guess though that KCLK doesn’t really care what happens west of Pomeroy. Pretty tough listening conditions and no advertisers out there.

    The paywall doesn’t allow for any details… Maybe you could summarize?

    Also KCLK (FM 94.1) is 100 miles away in Clarkston, Wa. I doubt if a translator in Athena, Or will affect anything that far away. Possibly you have mistyped the calls.

    Same same to the north in Seattle… Not only is regional VP Robert Dove on the beach but they retired the KJR FM morning show, KJR AM midday host, two morning show producers and probably many others. I also heard they RIFFED a guy I believe to be the local GM directly under Dove.

    Eventually they will run out of people making enough money to make a difference if they lay them off.

    JPR Has a few solar powered translators scattered throughout the state of Jefferson.

    The only ones I remember for sure are Iron Mountain south of Powers in Coos County and Lakewood, Or.

    I know there are more…

    The biggest reason my parents won’t cancel their crappy overpriced Cable One service and go to some form of OTA or streaming is Mariners games. Root sports is only available on cable. MLB is relentless at keeping people tied to cable.

    Currently even road games broadcast on other networks are blacked out on my YouTube TV, and apparently that blackout zone covers most of the western US.

    LOL @ Jeff N… That happens because he is so obviously over-caffeinated that his fast talking got him to the TOH early.

    I’m with Paul on this one… This concept may have been true 30 or 40 years ago but folks in their 50’s and up are not the same now as they were even one generation ago.

    The situation we have now is that traditional media are no longer the primary way to find out about new products to try.

    Upper demo consumers are much more savvy with the internet now… And are at the same time still the highest users of radio and TV… It could almost be flipped, Radio no longer reaches as many teens and easily influence-able young single people with disposable income.

    Therefor targeting upper demo’s with disposable income seems like it would be a no brainer in this day and age. Especially for categories like food/beverage, entertainment, etc… More than just ED and male pattern baldness so typical of the state of the art on say Sports Radio for instance.

    But then again we no longer have actual sales people in the media, we have order takers from the big agency buyers who are ran by millennials and gen ex’ers who still hold on to the “get off my grass” stereotype of the upper demo.
