  4. WLEX-FM [WKQQ's original call letters] came on the air in 1968 on 98.1 MHz

    WKQQ was licensed as a 50 KW facility on 98.1, and in 1974 that was increased to 100 KW. It ran as an Album-Oriented Rock station from this site until 1998 when the FCC mandated that all Class C FMs running 100 KW ERP (effective radiated power) must be 1000' HAAT.( height above average terrain)
    At this point, WKQQ switched frequencies with the old Winchester, KY Class A FM, received a CP for 20 KW on 100.1 MHz and built a new station and identity. The station now plays a Mainstream Rock format of its former rotation. Winchester received the old 98.1 MHz frequency at the 100 KW power level. WBUL-FM currently occupies 98.1.
