WCQS Brevard Signal is Moving September 16th!


Brevard and Transylvania County listeners get ready! The WCQS signal is moving Monday, September 16th at 9 a.m. On Monday morning at 9, WCQS listeners in Transylvania County can hear us at 90.5 FM. That's this Monday - for listeners in Brevard and Traynsylvania County.

Effective September 16th at 9 a.m. WCQS, Western North Carolina Public Radio, Inc. will switch its current Brevard translator frequency from 105.1 FM to 90.5 FM. WCQS’s current frequency at 105.1 FM is threatened by interference from another licensed station. The transfer to 90.5 FM allows WCQS to continue uninterrupted service to its listeners in Transylvania County.

WCQS President and CEO, Jody Evans, says, “Competition for space on the dial is fierce, but our engineering team has worked diligently to ensure uninterrupted and consistent coverage to our listeners in Transylvania County. 90.5 FM is the most solid and secure frequency for Brevard at this time. Our listener base in Transylvania County is tremendously loyal and supportive of WCQS. We know how much they value the programming we broadcast and we appreciate the outpouring of concern about the signal over the years. We will continue to monitor and safeguard the new signal at 90.5 FM.”

The transition should be seamless for listeners. At 9 a.m. on September 16th listeners in the Brevard coverage area should tune in to 90.5 FM. Listeners who have any questions about the transition or have trouble with the new frequency may call WCQS at 210-4800 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday or email info@wcqs.org.
