Not sure when it happened but there's a loop on 105.5 now directing listeners to the main 88.3 signal. KCPW at 105.5 is done.
The interesting thing is that KCPW was still on 105.5 months after their authorization to broadcast at the Wasatch Front went away when they relicensed to Erda. This may be related to a filing K288GY (the former KCPW translator) made today (2/23). It looks like the 105.5 move in is being reversed. There's an application now to make the translator omnidirectional from Farnsworth and rebroadcast KUDD-HD2. There's a reference in the application to a simultaneous application by KDWY to prevent mutual interference and that would keep KDWY from becoming a Salt Lake rimshot. The KDWY half of the application isn't in the database yet but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Has KCPW done anything to strengthen their 88.3 signal? I seem to recall that Wasatch Public Media had filed something with the FCC in that regard. It seems like the 88.3 signal reaches a little further into northern Utah County than it used to before K202CC overwhelms the signal. csnradio.com/stations/coveragemaps/UT_ProvoK202CC.pdf
Yes. KCPW moved to the Oquirrhs (at least according to their filings) in December. Whether they actually moved then or not is unclear. Their new coverage area as I recall is pretty much the same as the K288GY translator was before all this started.
