Shortly after the station was licensed (as WTUR in 1988 and later WCDJ in 1992), the original owners, Truro Wireless, Inc., ran into opposition from the Truro local government, who objected to a radio tower being built within the town limits. Until such a tower was built, the station could not air a regular broadcast schedule. In lieu of a tower, WCDJ would occasionally broadcast just long enough, via a small transmitter, at 340 watts, to keep their FCC license intact. The first of these limited broadcasts occurred in August 1999.
On March 29, 2007, the FCC granted a transfer of the WCDJ license to Dunes 102FM LLC. The new owners got the call letters changed to WGTX, and began full broadcast service as "Dunes 102: Cape Cod's Oldies Radio" on August 5, 2007.
In 2012, the station dropped the "Oldies" moniker from their branding, re-branding themselves as "Cape Cod's 102.3, The Dunes", in light of the format-wide re-branding of 'oldies' stations.
