Following up on the KMED “retiring” 1440 kHz story … on Monday (Jan. 9) of this week the FCC approved a flip of call signs between KMED-1440 Medford OR and co-owned KYVL-106.3 Eagle Point OR, to be effective today (Jan. 11). The new callsign for 1440 is live in the FCC LMS system (though not yet in CDBS/AM Query) as of this evening.

KMED is still on the air.  They got my hopes up on Sunday morning by disappearing for several hours, but they were back just after 7 am and have been heard every night so far this week.  At 9 pm tonight, I heard an ID for “KMED & KMED-HD1 Eagle Point, KCMD Grants Pass, and KYVL Medford”, so the call swap is confirmed.
