Radio y Televisión Querétaro (RTQ) is the state radio and television network of the Mexican state of Querétaro, broadcasting on two radio stations and one television station in the state. It is operated by the Sistema Estatal de Comunicación Cultural y Educativa del Gobierno de Querétaro (SECCE), or "State System for Cultural and Educational Communication of the Government of Querétaro".

Radio[edit]

XEQUE-AM 1150 kHz came to air on February 5, 1988, a day after its formal inauguration by President Miguel de la Madrid. Radio Querétaro was initially considered among the best noncommercial radio stations in Mexico, earning favorable comparisons to Radio Educación. In June 2005, XEQUE was replaced with a new FM station, XHQUE-FM on 100.3 MHz with 15 kilowatts ERP.

In 2005, the state government applied for a new AM radio station to be located in Jalpan de Serra, and XEQJAL-AM 1200 kHz, a 5 kW daytimer, signed on after receiving its permit in early 2007. It holds a permit to move to FM as 25 kW XHQJAL-FM 95.1 MHz.[1][2]
