Right now the calls are still WLFM-LP. However, last Tuesday WLFM, LLC did file a request for the WKQX-LP calls. It doesn't specify what station they plan to use them on but one sure can't imagine them using them anywhere else!
I might guess it'll stay WLFM until they have the permanent format ready to go. But that's only a wild guess.
>They might be ID'ing as WKQX-LP but their RDS/RBDS says "WIQI" LOL. [WIQI supposed to be on 101.1 ...oops!] Title/Artist is nice to have, though they are saying at the end of a tune what just played. On 101.1 it doesn't say "WIQI" just Constant Traffic Reports are scrolling.

What kind of signal does 87.7 have in Chicagoland?
"Fair. Not quite as good as the big sticks....but certainly adequate in most areas of the metro. Especially the city and close-in suburbs."
>I thought the signal seemed a bit weaker after Alt-Rock Q87.7 signed on. I can't imagine why their engineers might fiddle with the transmitter power output. At least in the far NW suburbs near Crystal Lake, McHenry and nearby towns the signal seems a bit noisier (less signal strength) than it had been when it was WLFM-LP Smooth/Jazz.
