KQCT-LP is a low-power television station licensed to Davenport, Iowa. It is off the air. The station had previously broadcast an analog signal on UHF channel 61, but now has no digital signal on-the-air. However, KQCT-LP currently has a construction permit for a digital signal on UHF channel 17.

TBN took the former K61HD silent March 30, 2010 due to declining support, which has been attributed to the digital transition.[1] On May 4, 2012, the callsign for this station changed from the previous translator-style calls K61HD to the current KQCT-LP, following its sale to its current owners, Luken Communications, which owns the station through its Digital Networks subsidiary.[2]

When KQCT turns on its digital signal, and returns to the air, it will be affiliated with Retro Television Network.[citation needed] It was seen before on WHBF-TV, on its digital subchannel of 4.2, before being replaced by Live Well Network.
