So...why is KPDQ-FM afraid to broadcast in stereo?

The mono signal gives them coverage similar to what they had in stereo at higher power and a better signal to their translators.

When I worked there, we turned the stereo on, to play music. For talk programming, we went mono. For better coverage. This was in the late 70's into the mid-80's.

Heh heh heh! :-)

I find it somewhat of a paradox that in this age of automation, very, very few FM stations go to mono on monophonic program material. If the station's automation system were in charge of "flipping the switch," then there would be no chance of the board op goofing up and forgetting to turn the stereo back on for music programs.

I remember when TV stations used to disable the colorburst during black-and-white programs. It has probably been 15 years since the last time that I saw anyone do this.

What's that mean - "no phone calls"?

Can't I just call and say hello?

It means if you call the radio station to try to talk to someone about the job opening, you're not following directions and therefore will (probably) not be considered.

Yesh. That makes sense.

A local station should sing off so we can hear a station from San Francisco. Whatever.

It oughta be the other way around.

I would normally agree, but, imho, KGO is BY FAR the best commercial news/talk station in the country and it is a bit of a bummer that their signal is effectively blocked in much of Portland and Seattle. (Especially since local talk radio in both cities does so little at night these days....) Oh, well....

I think that it would have been better if Salem had moved KPDQ-AM to 910 and then taken 800 dark.

KGO "signal is effectively blocked in much of Portland"

Hmmm. Mainly west side and downtown, but I don't have any problem with them elsewhere. I get KGO just fine over by Lloyd Center and points east and south. Occasionally when KPDQ plays music, it splatters over when in the inner city area. Otherwise, except for fades, I don't have much problem getting KGO.

At home in downtown Hillsboro, I can get decent reception of KGO by nulling out KPDQ-AM. Reception in the car can be tricky if the skywave propagation isn't very strong. If I have to go over the West Hills, I change the radio to another station, as there is too much splatter on 810 during that part of my journey.

before KPDQ was on at night, it was really easy to listen to KGO on car radios or cheap table//clock radios anywhere around town after sunset and first thing in the morning too!without hardly any kgo splatter!!I think kgo had big ratings here in the 80's!before kpdq wiped them off of the "very easy to pick up catagory"!!??

When there were no local Talk stations at night, KGO had a 26 share in Portland and sold advertising here.

Good point, Jimbo. When I lived in Portland I lived in NW and had a lot of trouble with KGO's sgnal after KPDQ was granted nighttime operation...I'm glad to hear it's easier elsewhere....now I live in downtown Seattle and it's just as hard to hear KGO at night...

820 here in the Seattle area, KGNW, is a religious station (owned by Salem) with a very powerful signal...

This must be some kind of a conspiracy by Salem to make it difficult to listen to KGO. KGO has an openly gay talkshow host, Karel, on in the evenings; it makes perfect sense. :-)

Broadway- is this job posting your job? (ex-job)? I have gotten that impression but no one has confirmed it.

Yes, no more 2:30am wakeup calls which was my main reason for the bow. Friday October 17th will be my last day after almost 4 years with Salem. A mixed but overall positive experience in my first cluster. Gonna semi-retire for a while after paying off house recently...did the numbers...don't have to make the $ for now. Looking forward to other radio opportunities and grandkid experiences...off to the pumpkin patch now.

Dan-All my best to your future radio dealings. I understand that early morning grind that's why I'm enjoying doing a morning show from my basement without the whacky hours.

Let us know where you land on your feet.
