    The KVVZ 70 dbu barely nips the northernmost sliver of San Francisco, pretty much limited to Presidio, Ghirardelli Square area and the western part of North Beach. By Presidio Heights and Embarcadero, it's outside the city grade.

    Yeah, it's a Class A signal with a terrible TX location. Simply put, it's not meant to be a "Bay Area" station. A view from 101 in San Rafael. Thats the KVVZ tower.

    Are they still running that translator on 100.9 from Mt. Beacon? Seems to me they could move it to a better location and/or increase the power since it's a fill-in.

    I'd completely forgotten that they'd moved that station. It used to BE 100.9!

    According to the FCC, they are.

    I had no idea they had a translator on 100.9. Does anyone listen to it?

    Coverage looks like a smaller version of KVVZ's footprint. Seems a bit redundant but 100.9 has to translate 100.7 as they may bleed over each other, and COL's so close together correct?

    The 100.9 translator doesn't do anything in San Francisco. When I was hiking in Angel Island, I can see the Mt. Beacon line of sight, but I picked up KSXY (Y100.9 FM) instead of HOT 100.7/105.7 repeater.

    Why would a station targeting San Jose Hispanics that does not subscribe to the San Francisco Book need the small 100.7 San Rafael, and 100.9 Sausalito signals which don't even come in clear in all of SF much less the Southbay? As mentioned before seems like KBRG, or even KSOL would benefit more from these two signals, at least they show up in the SF Book.

    KVVZ is subscribed in SF, KVVF in San Jose. Since they are a simulcast, they have combined listings

    Starting today, KBRG is now leaning towards what KLVE is exactly playing in LA. A refresh of newer latin pop music, format still remains as Spanish AC since it's still a combination of older and newer music.

    Now this can be a chance for KVVF Hot 105.7 to focus on what KYLD, KMVQ, KEZR plays without mixing in spanish in their programming.
