The way CJRJ splatters, they beat up KEX even on the North Coast at night.
Here is a dumb question:
Can a translator operate when the main AM signal is off the air?
I reference from mwdxer:
“For the past several months, KKOR 1230 Astoria has been off more than on. It seems in the past couple of days, KKOR is back with usual oldies //106.3 translator.”
I was on the central Oregon Coast this past week and noticed a couple of things. 1. K252EQ 98.3 is off the air. KNPT still mentions it on their station ID, so I’m guessing the problem is temporary.
2. There is now a station on 106.5 in Lincoln City playing a Rock format. I didn’t hear any id or talk on the station. Pirate?
Yes, KKNU did start out on 93.1.
I was in Salem the other day and did not hear K227DU. It must have been off for some reason.
They are aware of the audio quality and will be working on it. It has a much better signal from the new location.
Sometime between July 10 and 17, K228FN (KZGD) moved from 93.5 to 93.3
I have never heard it here.
Screamer, too many national shows on 750, however, they have the best signal of the 4 sports stations.
“With the KOPB/KGW tower changes I noticed that FM 91.5 (OPB radio) was not coming in very well up in Longview (last week).”
Dan–I noticed that 3 weeks ago going to the coast. I hope that it gets fixed soon.
Will KOMO Radio or TV have to change call letters? I remember when KGW radio was sold, they had to.
Too bad on 1110, KBND has a good night signal up that way.
Yeah, It’s too bad the FCC doesn’t let them have the FM and shut off the AM side.
I don’t know if anybody reported that KAST Astoria now has an FM translator K278CW on 103.5. It is listed in Radio-Locator as 250 watts.
KFIR must have been testing the new transmitter yesterday night. Tonight I am not hearing them at all.
check out 720 KFIR Sweethome. They were coming into Beaverton last night with a strong signal. KDWN nowhere to found. At the Station Break at the top of the hour, they mentioned a new 10 kW transmitter to help serve all of Eugene and Lane County. So, since KDWN downgraded, I am wondering if KFIR will stay at 10 kW at night, or if perhaps they are testing the new transmitter.
