Translator Launches Lead To Redding AM Frequency Swap
Mapleton Communications has moved its two Redding CA AM formats to new frequencies as both launch FM translators.
News/Talk 1400 KQMS has moved to 1670, while launching a simulcast on 105.7 K289BT Anderson. The move places the Talk format on the 10kW daytime/1kW night 1670 signal, while giving it the 250w/407m signal from the KSHA-FM tower in Iron Mountain outside the city. KQMS continues to simulcast on 99.3 KQMS-FM Shasta Lake City despite the considerable signal overlap with the new 105.7. The three frequencies are being branded as “Redding’s News Talk Superstation”.
