There is a translator in Jackson on 93.3 as well.syntheticexctasy wrote: ↑Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:23 amI can attest to KQZ's awesome coverage - it covers most anything north and east of the US23 and I75 interchange. I've even heard it pretty well travelling I-69 out to Lansing. I often listen to WKQZ in the woods outside Mio and as far north as Hillman and Atlanta, but as soon as you get into town (where there's interference and height issues) you lose it. I don't have much experience west of 75, but I have heard of others over towards the west side of the state hearing it quite regularly.bmw wrote: ↑Thu Feb 16, 2017 9:28 pmThat is in-part due to WKQZ's luxury of being the only station in the entire state, both Upper and Lower Peninsula, broadcasting on the 93.3 frequency. Speaking of which, how did they get so lucky? That's quite remarkable that they are the only station, both full-power, and low-power, broadcasting on that frequency. 95.9 looks to be the only other frequency with that distinction, though they do have a 12kw station in Windsor.TheForce wrote:I am able to get WKQZ and WCEN here in Grayling. I have actually got WKQZ as far as Cadillac!
You're not the only one who's noticed that they're alone in the state on that freq (aside from W227CG Grand rapids, but I don't think that counts LOL) If WDRQ didn't have IBOC, I suspect WKQZ would penetrate further south as well. They do pretty well with their 39kw.
95.9 has two stations on it (WLKM in Three Rivers and WLJW in Fife Lake; WKZC was originally on 95.9 before moving to 94.9 years ago). 106.5 only has one full power station in MI (WVFM Kalamazoo)
