History:
Aframsouth was awarded a construction permit for a new LPFM station in Montgomery in March 2015.  They signed the station on with 100 watts of power from a site off South Boulevard, behind the Life Changing Mission Outreach building in March 2018.  From the beginning, the station has been community-oriented, with a mix of music and talk programming geared towards the city's African American community.

The station filed to go silent in October 2018, citing loss of electricity at the transmitter site.  The station was off the air for approximately five months.  The same issue occurred again in June 2019, and the station was off for approximately seven months.  After a third loss of electricity (and vandalism at the transmitter site) in January 2021, the station was off again, and sought a modification to move to a new transmitter site.  That was granted in April 2021.

The station appears to have signed back on in May 2021 from their new site in a residential area off South Court Street.  The transmitter site is now located on a board member's property, with the antenna on a pole in the back yard.
