WLCQ-LP (99.7 FM, "The Q 99.7") is a radio station licensed to serve Feeding Hills, Massachusetts.[1] The station is owned by Lighthouse Christian Center.[2] It airs a Christian Contemporary music format.[3][4]

The station was assigned the WLCQ-LP call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on June 18, 2005.[5]

FCC troubles[edit]

In October 2015, Saga Communications filed a petition to revoke the license of WLCQ-LP.[6] Saga accused WLCQ-LP of several technical errors of their license, including operating their transmitter "more than a football field" from the licensed location, as well as changing antennas from a "one bay to a two bay" without prior notification to the commission, among other errors.[7] WLCQ-LP filed to correct the errors with the FCC in November 2015.[8] The status of the objection, construction permit to correct facilities, and special temporary authority have been resolved with the commission as the FCC struck down Saga's complaints.
