WPQR (1050 AM) was a radio station licensed to Conway, New Hampshire, USA, serving the White Mountains area. The station was last owned by Mt. Washington Radio & Gramophone, L.L.C.,[3] and carried a tourist information format (similar to Highway advisory radio) with a simulcast on broadcast translator W237BX before it went dark on October 17, 2012. The tourist information format, call letters and FM rebroadcast were then transferred to the new station on 1340kHz (then WPQR) which picked up the WBNC call letters. WPQR's license to broadcast was deleted on November 14, 2013 after being surrendered by the licensee on November 6, 2013.
