History:
This station has had a troubled history.  In the summer of 2004, a fire that was suspected to arson destroyed both the office and transmitter for the station.  The station's owner was able to get back on the air via lower powered means less than a month after the fire thanks to a donated transmitter.  The FCC canceled the license for this station in April 2012 for failing to renew on time.  This is the second time the license has been canceled, with the first incident happening in June of 2005.  In April 2016 the FCC re-instated the license once again and it was reported on air but with a weaker than normal signal.  That lasted until early August of 2016, when the station was reported to be back to a normal signal strength.
