Listener Comments and Reviews

Dear Sir\Madam Ever since you have begun to broadcast,your frequncy of 88.3 MHz has interfered with the reception of the PBS Station in San Francisco broadcasting on 88.5. This has prevented several hundred listeners in the Gualala-Sea Ranch area from receiving KQED that has been successfully heard for over 20 year here on that frequency. Your signal can also be heard here on 88.4, 88.5. 88.6 and 88.7. Please check your transmitting frequency crystal to be certain that it is broadcasting precisely on your FCC designated frequency. I would appreciate having a response to this request. Sincrely, Dr. L. Hayflick email:

Dear KGUA, I would like to echo the comments of others in the area who are distressed that your signal is blocking KQED on 88.5. I hope you can fix this as it is the only station I listen to. Up on the ridge we get very little reception, no cell service or fast internet. For us KQED was a lifeline to the rest of the world. I listened to it every day. Please adjust your signal to allow us to still receive our favorite station. Thank you.

So glad I found these comments, and will simply echo the frustration of losing an important resource. Am very eager for this to be resolved, as KQED will no longer come in on any of my home radio sets, nor in my vehicle while traveling a wide range of areas from south coast to northern ridge.

I was listening in my car to KQED tonight to a fascinating show only to get home and to NOT be able to hear it as I got KGUA instead when tuned to 88.5. Please adjust your frequency so that we do not lose KQED on the ridge. Thank you!

I too am VERY DISAPPOINTED about what has happened recently regarding your FM broadcast. Listening regularly to KQED has helped keep me sane for the past few decades. Since your station has aired, you have ”hogged” up the surrounding frequencies, making listening to the only intelligent station in this area impossible. All I hear now is repetitive, monotonous bass boom. Please turn your station off entirely or move it far from 88.3/88.5. AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I will notify the FCC if you don’t get this straightened out.

Hispanic pop music bleeds all over 88.5 KQED as far away as Healdsburg/Geyserville. 88.3 is also effected.
