You are thinking of the new “Boost Radio” at 103.7 FM. GREAT sounding station!!
Interestingly, the asset purchase agreement for KXXP acknowledges the power limitation on Mt Defiance, but say the Forest Service is open to allowing the increase in power.July 8, 2021 at 12:33 pm in reply to: Radio station, mid 2000’s, played ~17 second clips of songs all day? #51059
Yes, you are right, noSignal! I believe KVMX was the second or third “Movin” formatted station in the country behind Seattle, and maybe San Francisco. They never sounded as good as Seattle did though, and didn’t see the ratings they wanted.July 6, 2021 at 2:36 pm in reply to: Radio station, mid 2000’s, played ~17 second clips of songs all day? #51046
I have a cassette of “Quick 106,” somewhere in my boxes of airchecks.
HD Radio never solved a problem the average listener was having. Yes, a solid HD signal sounds great, but FM wasn’t losing massive amounts of listeners over audio quality.
And to this day, the industry hasn’t created compelling content to drive listeners to the HD channels. I remember when then Clear Channel moved Smooth Jazz from an FM here in town (105.9, I think?) to the HD2 of K103… The format didn’t work on a primary FM…but you think people are going to spend money to hear it on HD? Head scratcher.
I agree with Semochie, HD has become the fourth or fifth option for in-car listening. Somebody needs to create some kind of new and compelling national formats, and only run them on HD. And even then, it may be too late for HD.
Yes, Screamer. I would think so as well. I am in Wilsonville and can’t pick them up. I go back to my last question…
Are the really running from a different site than the one noted on the license?
So, forgive me, but are we saying KYTE is not broadcasting from the site the FCC shows them at?
Thanks Broadway. Google Earth shows a whole bunch of solar panels at that site. Is it possible they site could be powered that way?
Is this not an accurate portrayal of the signal?
Interesting line in the Bustos response…
“Therefore, Bustos did not have fair notice of the
latest arguments asserted by NWR, an organization believed to be controlled by Caucasians, and the Audio Division issued its April 28 letter ruling without providing Bustos, a Hispanic broadcaster with a long record of meritorious service to the public, an opportunity to be heard.”
