History[edit]

WLEX-FM [WKQQ's original call letters] came on the air in 1968 on 98.1 MHz

WKQQ was licensed as a 50 KW facility on 98.1, and in 1974 that was increased to 100 KW. It ran from this site until the late 90's when the FCC mandated that all Class C FMs running 100 KW ERP must be 1000' HAAT. At this point, WKQQ switched frequencies with the old Winchester, KY Class A FM, received a CP for 20 KW on 100.1 MHz and built a new station and identity. Winchester received the old 98.1 MHz frequency at the 100 KW power level. WBUL-FM currently occupies 98.1.[3]
