Dart on Map - KEGK

It's been a long time since I've thrown a random dart at a map and found the closest radio sticker to where it landed.  The dart landed on the North Dakota/Minnesota border about 10 miles south of Fargo.



A static window sticker from "Eagle 106.9" KEGK, a Classic Hits station licensed to Wahpeton, North Dakota, a few miles south of where the dart landed.

Danubius Rádió

From what I can tell in trying to read this translated Wikipedia page, Danubius Rádió was a contemporary music station based in Budapest, Hungary from 1986 to 2009.  The original idea was to broadcast in German for an Austrian audience because, at the time, commercial stations in Austria were illegal.  Danubius Rádió became an internet-only station after terrestrial broadcasts ended.  Online streaming ceased in 2010.

This video documents the final night of Danubius Rádió.

WNRR

This sticker from "Winner 98 FM" is proving to be a tough one to definitively identify.  Someone wrote "WNRR WI" on the back.  This 1973 Wisconsin Blue Book lists a WNRR in Neenah, WI.  This guy's LinkedIn page says that he was a weekend jock on WNRR in Appleton, WI in the late 1960s.  Both the 1968 and 1969 Broadcasting Yearbooks don't show a WNRR in their alphabetical list of all call letters.  A current check for stations licensed to these two cities don't show any that are close to the 98 FM frequency.  Anybody know what frequency, format and city of license this sticker is from? 

UPDATE:  See comments.
