Bandon City Park
Serving Bandon at 91.7 MHz
Location: the Bandon City Park (geographic coordinates and map).
Picture was taken in March 2008.
The coordinates recorded in the FCC Database define a location south of Bandon that is surrounded by Ocean Spray cranberry bogs. The translator was not installed in that area.
In 1982, the translator was installed at the western edge of the City Park in the municipal radio building (seen as a dot on the map). The new building, pictured above, replaced the old structure several years ago.
The location of the original radio building is easier to identify on the map than on the actual grounds. Walls have been torn down, the landscape has been reshaped, open countryside has been filled with houses and large buildings, and adjacent areas have been covered with asphalt. There is no sign or artifact of the original radio building.
