1150 Portland

Bustos Swaps Portland AM Formats

Bustos Media has swapped formats and call letters at its Portland, OR cluster. Regional Mexican “La Gran D” KGDD moves from 1520 to 1150 while retaining its translator on 93.5. Brokered Russian “PDXRR” makes the reverse move from 1150 to 1520. The move places the programming without an FM simulcast on the stronger AM signal. 1520 operates with 50kW daytime and 15kW nights, while 1150’s facilities are just 5kW daytime and 10 watts at night. However KGDD also has 99 watt translator 93.5 K228EU to serve the market.

Portland Spanish Shift

Bustos Media has shifted programming on its Portland translator. 93.5 K228EU has moved its simulcast from Spanish AC “Exitos 93.5” 1150 KXET to Regional Mexican “La Gran D” 1520 KGDD. The 1150 signal is currently dark.
