- 95.7 was
originally allocated to East Brewton, with the WAFN call letters
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
