which came from 104.1. The allocation barely fit - the station was
site restricted to an area somewhat north of Brewton/East Brewton,
where the signal fell upon mostly woodland animals and the

hundred feet of additional coverage in any one direction. It
also included a slight correction to the transmitter site's
coordinates. In July of 2015 the calls changed from WKFP to
The power change and antenna height adjustment that was first
approved in 2015 wasn't fully put on the air until mid-2021.
