This station came on the air in the late spring or early summer of 2004 as "Help Radio" with a religious format.  It later migrated away from teaching and preaching towards music as "God's Country".  The station is known to be broadcasting on three different FM translators in the Tennessee Valley, giving this little low power FM coverage of over 120,000 people in the Huntsville/Decatur/Athens area.  In February 2017 the station applied, briefly, to move to 106.5 but quickly rescinded that application.  It's not clear why they thought the frequency would work, as a nearby translator running 250 watts has long occupied that channel.
