KHIL (1250 AM, "X Wave") is an AM radio station licensed to serve Willcox, Arizona, USA. The station is owned by KZLZ LLC. It airs an adult hits music format using a transmitter with an output of 5,000 watts (day), and 196 watts (night).
In 2007, KHIL applied to relocate to Kearny, Arizona, with a change in frequency to 1260 kHz and a power upgrade 10,000 watts. This application was dismissed by the FCC on April 21, 2008, and KHIL remains in Wilcox with a daytime power of 5,000 watts.
In March 2003, Clear Channel Communications reached a deal to acquire KHIL and KWCX-FM from Lakeshore Media LLC for $2.5 million, but that deal was contingent on the relocation of KWCX-FM to the Tucson area. The FCC denied the move and the deal fell through.
