Corvallis Translator Gets the Flu


KBOO’s Corvallis Translator broadcasting at 100.7FM has been faithfully serving our loyal listeners in the Corvallis/Albany area for some 21 Odd years. Last week it suddenly stopped operation. A replacement transmitter has been deployed to keep us on the air, however, the signal strength is at a lower power level. This explains why it’s more difficult to pick up KBOO at 100.7FM. Our dear old translator has been shipped for refurbishment/repair and we expect to have it back soon. As soon as repairs are complete it will be placed back into service at full power. I hope our local listeners will bear with us while our translator is being repaired. KBOO can still be heard online at KBOO.FM and on mobile devices. We have found “TuneIn Radio” app to work fairly well. Thanks for listening!

Real Life Adventures in Live Remote Broadcasting

In our last episode you may remember our intrepid technical and air talent volunteers broadcasting live from remote locations such as the Occupy Encampment, the Waterfront Blues Festival, PDX Pop Now, The Q Center and Pickathon. We link back to the station using audio streaming equipment connected to the Internet. The Real Life environments outside of our studios always present engineering challenges that often become epic adventures in broadcasting. Broadcasting from a tent in the rain using RV batteries in a little red “Radio Flyer” wagon at Occupy was a real slice of life for all of us on site and for our listeners.
