KGOU 106.3 Norman Per frequent announcements from the manager or CE, as heard on simulcaster KROU 105.7 Spencer/OKC, 106.3 has been down a lot lately for repairs, and they are about to replace the antenna and transmission line on Wednesday Sept 15, to be completed sometime on Thursday or Friday. Manager also does financial reports, including the fact that the debt on setting up 105.7 is not yet but soon to be paid off (gh) VANCE AFB 1610 TIS Now the carrier has been turned off too as checked Sept 13 (gh) OKC's KOKH TV FOX 25 EXPANDS NEWS Inaugurated a one-hour M-F 9 pm newscast in the summer of 1998 -- or was it 1997? Don't crash your plane off Martha's Vineyard or make any other news on a Saturday morning if you want to be covered on this station before Monday night! But now you only have to wait until Sunday night as a new half-hour newscast has suddenly appeared Sunday Sept 12 at 10 pm, delaying Deep Space Nine reruns till 10:30. And the number one anchor at the station, Jack Bowen, he of the toupee lawsuit, was even on hand at least for the inauguration. BTW, if I were writing this story for the Tulsa World, I would be forbidden by the paper's style to write "OKC" -- that's editorializing, they think, so the rival metropolis must be referred to only as "OC" (gh) KCSC FM SATELLITE FEED TO KBCW Glenn, I am sorry I have been slow to resond to your request for information about the KCSC uplink/downlink signal. Home dish receivers will not work to pickup this signal due primarily to the "proprietary" nature of the way the signal is encoded and sent. A special CommStream reciever model ABR-200 is required and a 1.8 meter dish with a special LNB (the little block out in front of the dish that recieves and amplifies the satellite signal). The receiver is the most expensive at about $4200 the dish and LNB would run about $800-1000 and you could expect installation, tuning, cables to run about $500-600. There would be no month fee for recieving the signal. Appreciate your request for information and we hope to continue to try and resolve the problem with the signal interference. I do understand that one person contact the broadcaster at 90.3 about the interference at her location and they came out and installed equipment that fixed the problem. You might try that approach and see if they are willing to help you as well. Additional complaints to the FCC field office in Dallas may also help. Sincerely. (Larry Iverson, Chief Engineer, KCSC/KBCW) KTOU - 22 ON AZTECA NETWORK With a lot of help from the troposphere, I can sometimes get a snowy picture from the new Spanish LPTV in OKC, KTOU -- but no audio unlike other signals of similar video strength, making me think something be amiss with their transmission, tho surely audio is to be heard at local range. On a B&W TV the picture rolls allowing the vertical interval to be seen, which at 1345 UT Thu Sept 9 displays: "TV AZTECA XHDF TV13" as one sees on affiliates within Mexico, so this is no doubt straight off the satellite feed; includes ads expressed in pesos. By 1355 was strong enough for audio to penetrate, tho noisy, and no stereo pilot. Morning variety show "Sin Fronteras" coincidentally with CDT time bubbles (gh) KWBT STILL RUNNING TEST VIDEO LOOPS I've heard it so often it only takes a second of the music to know that the new 5 MW WB station in Muskogee/Tulsa, KWBT, ch 19, was STILL running the test video of WB promotion, Tulsa scenes, when checked Sept 9 at 1347 UT. After 1400 they had something different, more continuous program promos for Cops, Real People, etc., but no actual programming now! (gh) POSTED HERE SEPT 8: FROM CARIBOU TO CITADEL No major changes are in the works for the Sports Animal Network and three other local radio stations that were sold to new owners last week. Las Vegas-based Citadel Communications announced it would acquire Caribou Communications for a deal valued at nearly $60 million. Besides Sports Animal stations KNTL-FM 104.9 and WWLS-AM 640, Caribou's portfolio included rock station KATT-FM 100.5, adult contemporary KYIS-FM 98.9 and jazz station KCYI-FM 97.9 The deal, which will make Citadel that largest U.S. radio broadcaster for mid-size markets, is pending approval from the Federal Communications Commission, a body which only last week was critical of Citadel's expansion along the East Coast. Upon approval of the Caribou transaction, Citadel will operate 88 FM and 26 AM stations in 23 markets across the country. (Oklahoma Gazette September 1, 1999 via John Norfolk, OKCOK) VANCE AFB TIS ON 1610 This 10-watter has been silent for several weeks now. On car radio it's hard to tell, but checked at home Sept 6 at 1850 and the open carrier IS on. What do you bet no one at the base is aware of this? I found open-carrier-only TIS at National Park after National Park this summer. Tell a ranger/visitor center employee and your first challenge is to get across what you're talking about. Tell them they might as well turn off the transmitter if they can't modulate it and you get more blank stares (gh) KOFM PUTS OUT SPURS KOFM 103.1, non-ID and RDS as "Thunder 103.1", Enid, noted Sept 6 virtually blocking "Magic 104.1" KMGL OKC, with spur, no doubt a mixing product from its AM side upon one of whose three towers the FM is mounted, KGWA-960, actually on 104.06 = 103.1 plus 0.96 MHz. Spur on the lower side was more in the clear, with the RDS actually lighting up there too, on 102.14 MHz, and bothering, tho not so much, another OKC station, 101.9 Twister. KOFM previously had less easily explained spur around 102.6 or 102.8 bothering yet another OKC station. Being AM, the KGWA audio was not to be heard (gh) Aug 30: REPLY FROM KCSC-FM [to our letter below] Dear Mr. Hauser: Brad Ferguson is away from the office for two weeks' vacation. Please allow me to respond to your earlier e-mail. KCSC has never, and will never, "give up" on any segment of our audience. We have quite a body of listeners in Enid and the surrounding area, and I know Brad (and the rest of us as well) have been very frustrated by the religious station at 90.3 up there. I know he's made phone calls and written letters to try to work out that situation. I am not aware of where the process stands as of today. We would love to have a translator/repeater in northwestern Oklahoma, but there is a significant outlay of money involved. In McAlester, we have a patron who was willing to match funds with government grants and private donations in order to bring our repeater into that community. I'm sure that if sufficient funds (and an available frequency) could be found in your area, we would be glad to undertake such a project there. Rest assured, I will see that Brad gets your message. As for technical details on the downlink, I will defer a response on that to Larry Iverson, our Chief Engineer. Yes, this past Friday was to have been a New York Philharmonic week. However, the problem was not, as you said, "because someone forgot to tape it the night before." The tape was in the machine and rolling at the correct time, Mr. Hauser. Believe it or not, the mistake was not on our end! No program was fed. Either there was a last-minute cancellation, problems at the satellite uplink, or the date was changed without proper notification to stations. I talked on Friday to another affiliate station and they were as perplexed as we were. I left messages with WFMT in Chicago, the program's distributor, and have thus far not received an explanation. The decision was made to play CDs of the music which was scheduled for the Philharmonic's program, since it had already been printed in our program guide listing for that time period. You'll be happy to know that beginning with the fall season of the New York Philharmonic, it will be in a new time slot, Saturdays at 9:00 p.m., which will only pre-empt another orchestra program monthly. SCHICKELE MIX will no longer be pre-empted. This decision was made several weeks ago, for several reasons. I trust you will find this arrangement satisfactory for your listening purposes. Our website is currently down, which is why you can't get to it. We are in the process of changing providers, as well as making technical modifications to get our audio onto the Internet. This has proven to be a longer process than originally thought. Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you. KCSC is NOT, I repeat NOT, being sold. Yes, there were rumors to that effect, but we're staying right here and maintaining our current format. I hope I've been able to address at least some of your concerns. Thanks for listening, and for supporting KCSC. Sincerely, (Kent Anderson, Program Director, KCSC-FM, Edmond OK, Aug 30) Aug 29: KWBT ON AGAIN KWBT 19 Muskogee/Tulsa was on again with WB promo reel test Sunday morning Aug 29 in the 7 am hour; this time not so good with co-channel QRM - maybe Kansas City. Later clear and still going at 9:41 am (gh) KBCW IS PUNY Just received the new FM Atlas XVIII Aug 28 -- it's been a long wait since XVII was received Apr 24 1997. Shows KCSC's new McAlester relay KBCW *91.9 as 75 meter AAT antenna, 1950 watts, no stereo (tho there surely be), primary coverage radius 19 km so it's not much of a factor beyond the McAlester area. BTW, new Atlas arrived in slightly marred condition, since the back side of the unused clasp on the envelope had dug into the front cover. Brucey should at least load envelopes so back cover is next to that (gh) LETTER TO KCSC Dear Mr Ferguson: Congratulations(?) on your McAlester relay finally starting up. Remember us in Enid? You have evidently given up on NW Oklahoma. We are still having to put up with that damn satellator on 90.3 messing up your reception. You need a translator, at least, of your own here. Satellite fed to McA?? Please give technical details on your downlink. Can this be received by home dish owners here and everywhere? What happened to Schickele Mix this week? Evidently you were playing your own CDs during 7-9 pm Friday. Was this supposed to be another New York Philharmonic week, once AGAIN unable to be presented because someone forgot to tape it the night before, even tho it must have been one of their repeats??? When that happens, and it should not, why in the world don't you default back to Schickele? (and Classical Guitar) I again object stringently to S. Mix being the show which gets pre-empted monthly for NYP. Please, this season put NYP on Thursday, which will have the additional advantage of being LIVE, so you don't have to worry about tape-delaying it. Then, maybe, we will get to hear ALL NYP broadcasts as intended, and ALL Schickele Mixes. The last time I looked at your website there was a "members-only" area, but it was not clear what restricted info was being kept from the public in general. Minute-by-minute advance musical listings? Please mail your September hard-copy guide to me at P O Box 1684, Enid, OK 73702. Is there any truth to the report a few weeks ago that UCO was considering selling off KCSC to religious interests????? I certainly hope not, tho the demise of KCSC would certainly relieve a lot of our frustration as outlined above. Sincerely, Glenn Hauser, Enid KOCO TV ANCHOR COVERS OWN CANCER The story about cancer incidence being higher near Britain's high-power TV transmitters reminds me of this; the OKC TV station studios are at the same site as transmitters, tho I don't think there has been any attempt to fix such blame... KOCO-TV anchor Cherokee Ballard, a woman in her 30s, I think, has recently come out as undergoing chemotherapy cancer treatment. The reports appear about twice a week on the 10pm news. She seems to have a cheerful, stiff-upper-lip attitude; we watched her picking out wigs, but never really saw her pate. A few years ago she underwent a makeover considerably improving her appearance in a conventional anchorish way Cherokee Ballard is posting a weekly journal of her experiences on the website http://www.kocotv.com (gh) Aug 27: CLASSICAL STATION AIMS EASTWARD Classical radio station KCSC-FM (90.1) will begin broadcasting at noon today from its new McAlester station, KBCW-FM (91.9). The repeater station, which will serve much of eastern Oklahoma, will provide continuous classical music programming. Funding for satellite-uplink equipment was through a 1996 U.S. Department of Commerce grant for $96,275 and a $50,000 grant from Wanda and Clark Bass of McAlester. All programming will originate from KCSC, located on the University of Central Oklahoma campus in Edmond. KCSC/KBCW is a member of the Public Radio International Network. (Daily Oklahoman, Aug 27 via gh) KCSC 90.1 now heard with dual IDs; 91.9 itself not yet heard here as it is masked by KOSU 91.7 Stillwater; but between Stillwater and McAlester, KBCW will no doubt cut into KOSU's coverage. Satellite-fed? Must mean KCSC is now accessible everywhere? (gh) KWBT 19 Muskogee/Tulsa. Another morning tropo opening Aug 28 in the 7 am CDT hour brought perfect reception from this 5 MW behemoth, better than any other Tulsa-market UHF at the time. Still running WB promo reel mixed with "Tulsa" video, which is really neat. I was about to tape it on expected recycle when transmission cut off a few minutes before 8 am. So still in testing phase, and still no stereo. Not sure whether they are even running WB yet in primetime. I've never seen call letters yet; just constant WB logo, with "NINETEEN" below it in the lower right corner (gh, Enid) Aug 23: KROU / KGOU WEEKENDEVES The OKC/Norman public radio stations on 105.7 and 106.3 seem to have made some changes in programming since the last time I checked the website: CDT Sat 7 pm Native Sounds, Native Voices 8 pm Global Jazz Wire 10 pm Brazilian Hour 11 pm Celtic Connexions Sun 4 pm Beale Street 5 pm ATC 6 pm Native America Calling 7 pm Broadway Revisited 8 pm Swingin' Down the Lane 9 pm Riverwalk 10 pm American Routes (http://www.kgou.org Aug 21 via gh) Aug 23: KOSU-FM Highlights THE VOICES OF OKLAHOMA KOSU-FM and the Oklahoma Historical Society announce The Voices of Oklahoma: 100 Years of History, a new series of sound portraits featuring men and women who helped shape our great state. KOSU Capitol Correspondent Jennifer Johnson and Program Director Kelly Burley will narrate segments of the program. The Voices of Oklahoma features interview segments with participants of the Land Runs, Governors such as E.W. Marland, and the original Pistol Pete, Frank Eaton, and many others. The series will include profiles of Oklahoma outlaws and lawmen; Oklahomans and the Depression; the significance of Route 66; Oklahomans and the Great War; Native Americans and state Civil Rights leaders. The feature series will air during Oklahoma Edition at 7:50 am and 6:00 pm beginning Friday, July 2, and continuing through December. [on-air promotion for the above fails to mention the times to listen] JOHNSON RECEIVES OSU CELEBRITY STATUS On June 7, 1999, President James Halligan presented Jennifer Johnson with the Celebrate State Award officially recognizing her as an OSU Celebrity. This honor also acknowledges her award-winning broadcast journalism as KOSU's Capitol correspondent. Jennifer continues to set standards for new reporting excellence in Oklahoma. KOSU UNVEILS TALK OF THE STATE KOSU unveils Talk of the State a series focusing on current issues. Hosted by KOSU's News Director Carrie Hulsey, each 30-minute program will bring together experts and everyday Oklahomans for a discussion of local, state, or national events or issues. KOSU's Talk of the State airs the last Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m. and again the following Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Contact KOSU News Director Carrie Hulsey with your suggestions: 1-800-228-4678. MAKE KOSU YOUR WEATHER SOURCE In addition to providing Oklahoma with 23 hours of continuous live disaster coverage on May 3, 1999, KOSU provided broadcast organizations from around the world with news reports about the Oklahoma tornado disaster. Some of the broadcast giants requesting KOSU assistance include: National Public Radio (NPR), British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and CBS Radio (CBS). STUDENTS ARE IMPORTANT TO KSOU [sic] Students play a key roll [sic] in the operation of KOSU-FM and have since it's [sic] beginning. We are proud to serve as a springboard for many Oklahoma State University graduates. The station offers internships in news and production and hires work-study, undergraduate, and graduate students. KOSU typically uses 7-15 students per semester. During the Spring 99 semester alone, students received 1,248 hours of hands-on training from members of the KOSU professional staff. SPRING FRIEND RAISER A BIG SUCCESS KOSU set an all-time fundraising record. Thanks to listeners and matching companies, over $104,000 were raised in less than seven days! Listener contributors from 11 towns and cities supported KOSU during the drive. Pledges came from 391 Stillwater listeners and 934 additional supporters from around the State. The top cities in order of support are Stillwater, Oklahoma City, Ponca City, Edmond, Enid, Shawnee, Norman, Guthrie, Tulsa, and Perkins. KOSU EXCELLENCE AWARDS HITS 106! On April 27, 1999, ONE THIRD of the radio awards of excellence presented by the Oklahoma Associated Press Broadcasters went to KOSU! News Director Carrie Hulsey took top honors for her documentary, Epilepsy Hope, a 3-part series as an epileptic undergoes a new medical procedure to control seizures. Capitol Correspondent Jennifer Johnson received honorable mention for her feature story, Gameball, reporting on the off-field games associated with the OSU/OU bedlam football competition. Reporter Ted Riley took honorable mention for general reporting with, Cushing Evacuation, a story related to the removal of dangerous chemicals from a closed refinery.

[i.e. still LPTV? -gh] Yes. KOKH-25 would make a full-license 22 very difficult (though not impossible!) in OKC. But KTOU is in fact still a LPTV. At 67,500 watts a fairly powerful LPTV though. (they have applied to move to channel 21 with 58,100 watts; apparently they're being displaced by digital TV) This is the first I've heard of the "CIN" network. CBS Telenoticias, a Spanish-language all-news network, seems to be making some headway in over-the-air Hispanic TV in several markets, notably Miami and Houston. Somewhat to my surprise, there is still no over-the-air Hispanic TV in Nashville. We have two full-time (and several part-time) Hispanic radio stations, and Univision is on cable. > There, the station will have offices for local management and > advertising and a fully functional and locally staffed broadcast > studio.

It's a move of 21km straight north; the west longitude doesn't change even one second! The power also increases by slightly more than double, and the tower height from 183m to 461m. (Doug Smith W9WI, Nashville, TN) Aug. 17: KTOU TAKES TO LOCAL AIRWAVES TO OFFER SPANISH by Andrea Eger Oklahoma Gazette, August 12, 1999 It's a market untapped and a community under-served. Perfect business opportunity meets fundamental need. That's the mix the Cadena Independente Nacional, or National Independent Network, will try to achieve with the launch of Oklahoma City's first Spanish-language television station, KTOU-TV Channel 22. Technical kinks still are being worked out in regard to the station's signal, but viewers from south Oklahoma City to Noble already have had the opportunity to enjoy a few days of programming. Within two weeks, the KTOU signal should be coming through loud and clear across an even further expanse, one extending south of Purcell, north to about Britton Road, west of Yukon and east of Lake Thunderbird. [i.e. still LPTV? -gh] CIN is a rapidly developing Ft. Worth-based network competing in the Spanish language television world currently dominated by Univision and Telemundo. Most central Oklahoma residents -- of which more than 150,000 are estimated to be Latino -- already have cable access to Univision, three Spanish language radio stations and four Spanish language newspapers. The unique aspect of a CIN station is that it features programming designed specifically to meet local needs, and a substantial portion if it is generated locally. KTOU is not carried by a cable provider. To achieve the greatest local impact, CIN located its Oklahoma City station in the heart of the Latino community, Capitol Hill. "We considered locating on what's known as the 'antenna farm' of TV stations at Wilshire and Kelley," said Alan Luckett, CIN C.E.O. "But it's more prudent to be in the community we serve." The historic district has a Latino population of about 20 percent. CIN's location in an old Art Deco facade building at 328 W. Commerce is a perfect fit among the many shops with Spanish names. There, the station will have offices for local management and advertising and a fully functional and locally staffed broadcast studio. [and transmitter site?? -gh] Initially, about three hours a week will be dedicated to local community programming. General manager Chuck Collins said that programming will consist of local news and issues of concern to the Hispanic community, such as the possible relocation of a section of Interstate 40 through predominately Latino neighborhoods. Collins and Luckett said they also plan for the station to fulfill some community coordination functions, such as planning Cinco de Mayo festivities each year. But the majority of the 18-hour broadcast days will be filled with programming received from Mexico City via satellite. Grupo Azteca, a popular Mexico City provider, initially will be the source of most news, sports talk and variety shows and soap operas shown on KTOU. Spanish-language movies and some other bilingual features, such as the film "Stand and Deliver," about a Chicano teacher working with troubled teens in California, will be broadcast directly from master control in the Capitol Hill studio. Luckett said KTOU programming will be reviewed and updated as additional programming becomes available to the new network. "The process is evolutionary," he said. "We're looking at continually improving our signal and programming." The acquisition of KTOU reflects CIN's efforts to grow nationwide and meet an increased demand for Spanish-language programming. "We saw a perfect third opportunity for a network, in cities like Oklahoma City that have no local broadcast -- a situation that is prevalent across the nation," he said. "Latin-Hispanics are anticipated to be the [nation'] largest minority population in the 2000 Census. It is a largely under- served population." CIN is developing an operation similar to its Oklahoma City venture in Phoenix. Luckett anticipates opening six to eight CIN-operated stations and acquiring 20 to 30 affiliates around the country over the next sesquiyear. KTOU previously was owned by Cleveland Broadcasting, which used the medium for an independent station showing music videos. [Jukebox] (via John Norfolk, OKCOK) Jukebox was occasionally visible in Enid with enhanced tropo. Aug 17 at 1137Z checked channel 22, and found something with puppets, but no audio making it -- oops, a title says "Lavanderia" so it is in Spanish! (gh) Aug 17: TULSA HAS NEW WB ON 19 A much stronger signal on 19, perfect with morning tropo enhancement, dubbed in lower-right "WB Nineteen" -- from 1138 past 1200 UT Aug 17 with continuous WB promotion like a cable barker channel! But included a Tulsa/Koyannasqatsi type video so that must be where it be. No legal ID at hourtop. The reel seemed to repeat every 10-15 minutes. NO stereo pilot! Why wouldn't a brand new station have it? (gh) Aug 16: KWGS TULSA REDESIGNED WEBSITE Tho prevented from listening to 89.5 in Enid by a goddamned gospel- huxter translator, I was closer to Tulsa recently and heard them promoting their redesigned website including "live NPR, PRI and BBC" -- so might be useful everywhere, tho haven't had a chance to check it yet: http://www.kwgs.org BTW, in Tulsa area, I noticed 1270 Claremore was missing (gh) July 29: KSBI ch 52 in OKC has suddenly appeared with a much stronger signal, and for the first time with stereo pilot on. Signal had been very weak the past two months, perhaps damaged by the early-May tornado which went very close to its transmitter site on the SE side of OKC. Now I wouldn't be surprised if they have moved into the NE side antenna farm with all the other stations. Now it's at least as strong as KOPX ch 62. Unfortunately, KSBI, owned by Locke Supply Co., as attested by constant ID in upper left corner, continues with nothing but gospel huxters, and perhaps some secular infomercials. It also has several translators around the state, and some LPTV separately programmed but with more religion, such as ch 54 in Edmond. It also has a coveted(?) ch 9 position on OKC cable systems (gh, Enid, July 24) July 20: KFOR TV INAUDIO Is anybody listening at the KFOR-TV control room, ch 4 in OKC? July 20 for the entire NBC Today Show and even after that was very weakly modulated -- for normal level one had to turn up the TV sound to wide open, making the clash with overmodulated KWTV ch 9 even worse. The KFOR sound stayed low even during local breaks; not NBC's fault as it was normal on KJRH ch 2 Tulsa. I suspect someone inadvertently turned down the master gain control at ch 4. Never saw any supers saying "audio trouble" to show they were aware of it. Just as remarkable is that not a single viewer called and/or was able to get through to them, perhaps before normal business hours. Something like this -- one side of stereo audio only -- happened before and wasn't fixed till I E- mailed them later in the day, even tho there was no specific address on their website for technical complaints or contacts! So I sent it to the newsroom. Signal stayed in stereo, and just to be sure I switched to mono reception, but this made no difference (gh) July 12: An item in Frosty Troy's July 10 Oklahoma Observer indicates that the new administration at the University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond, is considering selling classical KCSC 90.1 to a religious organization. Say it isn't so! (gh)
