History

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 sometime in the late 70's or early 80's that was increased to 100 KW. It ran from this site until the late 90's when the FCC mandated that all Class C FMs running 100 KW ERP must be 1000' HAAT. At this point, WKQQ switched frequencies with the old Winchester, KY Class A FM, received a CP for 100 KW on 100.1 MHz and built a new station and identity. Winchester received the old 98.1 MHz frequency at the 50 KW power level. WBUL-FM currently occupies 98.1. [http://www.lkyradio.com/WKQQ.htm]
