Broadcast translators[edit]

WLYG is the FCC-listed primary or "parent" station for W217BJ FM 91.3 in Freeport, Illinois, some 983 miles (1,582 km) away. Like WLYG, this station is also owned by CPR. When its construction permit was issued, the station was originally given callsign W214BP for a few months in 2001, but did not go on the air until 2004. It is located north of town, not far northeast of where U.S. 20 meets Illinois 26.[3]

WLYG is also the listed primary station for W218CA FM 91.5 in Stockade, Florida, with a transmitter site located along Interstate 95 just north of Interstate 295 on the southeast side of Jacksonville. This station is owned by Lighthouse Christian Broadcasting.[4]

There are also 32 other translators that have been applied-for but not granted, including as far away as Anaheim, California, and the furthest at Port Angeles, Washington, 3,608 miles (5,807 km) away.
