    Default FM Scan - Vantage, WA/Ginkgo Preserve 4/28/2017

    There must have been tropo, pure luck, or the Columbia River was an influence. I've never received more from eastern Oregon than I did today! Nothing counts in the logs because this is far east Kittitas County. I wish this was a Yakima scan! Taken today near the Ginkgo Petrified Forest, a few hundred feet above Vantage. Radio is a Radio Shack DX-402 with whip fully extended. Love the 150khz filter mod, without it I wouldn't be able to get several of the stations today. Grids were DN06AX and CN96XX.

    102.3 - K272ED Kennewick (Smooth Jazz) 38W 61mi / KHKF Island City, OR (Classic Country 'Hank FM', new to air) 900W 159mi! Strong signal at times. Was thinking KICR Coeur D'Alene flipped formats from K-102 Country, based on the Spokane FMs. I was very surprised on the impressive signal of this one. Best La Grande signal by far, overpowering Kennewick with the turn of the antenna.
    102.5 - KZOK Seattle (Classic Rock) 68KW 100mi
    102.7 - KORD Richland (Country) 100KW 61mi
    102.9 - UNID Country station briefly, likely KSJJ Bend OR, would have been over 200 miles
    103.1 - K276EU Kennewick (K-LOVE) 15W 61mi / faint parallel so KYKV Selah, 5.4KW 32mi / K276GF Pendleton, OR (// KTIX-1240) 190W 108mi - was thinking this was the even-farther KVBL Union OR at first, but Dan Patrick's affiliates showed no sign of KVBL. So it's K276GF, parallel to 1240 KTIX Pendleton.
    103.3 - KWLN Wilson Creek (Regional Mexican) 25KW 51mi
    103.5 - KWHT Pendleton, OR (Country) 100KW 109mi
    103.9 - K280GI Richland (// KGTS-91.3) 155W 61mi
    104.1 - KXDD Yakima (Country) 100KW 33mi / possibly a second, even fainter signal under KXDD, but could have been my imagination. KXDD was very weak already.
    104.3 - K282AA Kennewick (// KMBI-107.9) 274W 61mi
    104.7 - KKRV Wenatchee (Country) 6.5KW 28mi / possibly KCMB La Grande (Country) under KKRV, but couldn't get confirmation. Would have been 100KW 159mi
    104.9 - K285FN Kennewick (Exitos 104.9) 250W 61mi / UNID with CHR/Top 40 and English female DJ, no ID and faded away within a minute. Did not have the 'meteor scatter' sound to it. Maybe KUBE Eatonville, format/calls ex-93.3 Seattle?
    105.3 - KONA-FM Pasco (Adult Contemporary) 100KW 61mi
    105.7 - KDIL-LP Kennewick (Spanish Catholic) 8W 61mi!! Very impressed with this one, being such low power. / KRSE Yakima (Classic Rock) 100kw 33mi / tentative KZBD Spokane (Top 40) 100KW 131mi
    105.9 - KRJT Elgin, OR (Classic Hits) 115W 147mi!! Best log of the day! Have a full TOH ID recorded. / UNID with conservative talk show, gave phone number but haven't listened to it again. I don't see any AM xlators on 105.9 in the NW.
    106.1 - K291BS Richland (Classic Hits // KALE-960) 250W 61mi / KZFN Moscow, ID (Top 40) 62KW 143mi
    106.3 - KLOO Corvallis, OR (Classic Rock) 100KW 228mi, briefly and only possible match with no Es.
    106.5 - KEGX Richland (Classic Hits) 100KW 61mi
    106.7 - KKWN Cashmere (News/Talk) 6KW 44mi
    106.9 - K295AV Walla Walla (106.9 the Oasis) 240W 101mi
    107.3 - KFFM Yakima (Top 40) 100KW 33mi / K297BE Kennewick (// KWCQ-106.1 The Beat) 50W 61mi
