    28.4 on their TVs, and hit the SAP. Hard to believe it’s a measurable audience though. KLCC at one time was a Jazz format and had a decent following.

    An FCC query has K284DD in Little Rock, AR.

    There is a K248BS in Newberg rebroadcasting KLVP HD-2 (Air 1). It will have to be moved before rebroadcasting KBMS, if that’s the plan, but they’ll have to keep some distance away from KDOA-LP, Vancouver.

    It was. K224DL started on 93.1, then moved.

    Not a difficult one to call. K224DL-FM (92.7 MHz) in Portland was originally near Newberg co-channel with KKNU, and KKNU was screaming over the top of them.

    Maybe we’ll soon see an app to transfer to EMF.

    There is a past connection between KUGN and “FM 98.” KUGN-FM used to broadcast at 97.9 FM, identifying as “98.” It was best known as a top-rated country station before Citadel Broadcasting bought it and made it a “first-to-worst” failure that required a relaunch as “Cat Country 98, KKTT.”

    One of the KZEL war stories happened right after the students came in as volunteers. They carried as live speech by President Nixon, but as it ended, the DJ Gary Palmatier segued smoothly into a David Frye comedy routine that depicted Nixon smoking pot. Mrs. Zellner demanded the person responsible be fired, which they didn’t do. So the next time the Zellners stopped by to visit, Gary had to be introduced with a made-up last name. It wasn’t long thereafter that the station was sold.

    I don’t know the 105.9 call sign. It was to be the new home for 102.9, having started on 102.3 translating 95.3 to east Springfield. That history appears to be gone. 98.1 started its life on 96.7 in Corvallis, moved to 96.5 due to interference from a 96.9 translator running 250 watts from Eugene.

    1320 only had a 48 watt night signal after the FCC started allowing pre-sunrise power at night.

    1540 was a companion to 96.1, but daytime only with no pre-sinrise authorization. It started as KWFS, and was bought by timberman, George Zellner in 1967, who programmed country music unsuccessfully. The AM-FM stations were off the air in late’69 when a group of college students approached the owner about signing the FM back on with progressive rock.

    Yes, for most of the years, but with a short time out with adult hits, I’m thinking Dave FM but I’m not certain.

    That’s an area where CCM would work, but they already have non-commercial K-Love and Air-1. People can go to 93.7 whenever EMF is fundraising, but I don’t expect it to work any better than, what was it? Dave-FM, or “Fred-FM playing stone-age favorites?”

    I often listen to KNRK HD2 when I’m in the area, and they have the same classic alternative hits on an internet stream. As for 98.3 in Dallas, it’s time-shared between two stations.

    I don’t think that frequency has made money since the days when it was the only country station in town. It was a big rock tied around the neck of every owner since the early 1970s. Even the daytime signal didn’t cover the full Eugene-Springfield area.

    KUGN has a CP for a translator at 105.9, and an STA to remain on 102.9 with flea-power, but 98.1 is already built, and the center of the dial is a more strategic spot than the upper end where the fewest other local stations are. It will be interesting to see what eventually happens with 105.9 though. Maybe EMF will apply for it, heh, heh.

    This logo, found on their Wikipedia page might be a clue.
