  • FM Bandscan - Hartline to Wilbur WA 8/7/2021

    Went on a nice little day trip Saturday along Hwy 2 in the wheat fields of north-central to eastern Washington, hitting estate sales, thrift stores, and even a flea market along the way.

    Nice bandscan!

    90.3 - If it sounded religious, then you have K212DB Moses Lake. If it didn't, then it's probably KPBZ Spokane.
    94.1 - If it sounded like rock, then you have K231CU Spokane. If it sounded like country, then you have KCLK Clarkston/Lewiston.
    95.7 - Is probably CJAT-FM. I had that one along with 94.9 CBC from Wilbur back in February.

    Fun fact: I got 90.1 KOLU w/ RDS, 98.3 KEYW w/ branding, 105.3 KONA w/ local ad and 92.5 KZHR today.
