- This is one of the older
LPFM stations in Alabama, having received its initial construction
permit in November of 2002. According to Wikipedia, the station
was constructed and went on air for testing as early as May 2004, but
records indicate they did file a license to cover until June, 2005.
Although the station is licensed to Madison, and Madison Baptist
Church is in the city of Madison on Rauch Road, the station transmits
from just outside of Athens and does not put a city grade signal
anywhere near the church or the city of Madison.
