About WCQR Radio

General Information

Where on the dial is my local WCQR?

Tennessee:
Tri-Cities – 88.3
Greeneville – 93.7
Rogersville/Morristown- 104.3

Virginia:
Wise- 104.7
Marion – 96.1

What does it take to get a station in my area? How much does it cost?

Even though we would love to have a signal in every city in America, several factors determine whether we are able to put a signal in a particular area. The main factor is the availability of frequencies. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all broadcast frequencies in the United States. Currently, most markets do not have any frequencies available. One option we have is to buy an existing high-powered station, but most of these stations sell for millions of dollars, a price generally out of WCQR’S reach.

Building low-powered stations (called translators, because they “translate” from one frequency to another) is also an option. Though translators do not cover as large an area as a full-power station, they still provide usable service. Unfortunately, the FCC has not accepted new translator applications for a number of years.

Because full-power stations take priority over translators, if an existing translator causes interference with another full-power station (even a new station), the translator must be removed.

Even with permission from the FCC, a station or translator can still take years to build. FCC and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, availability of land and tower space, local zoning laws, EPA restrictions and even weather can affect the timetable of building a signal or make it impossible to build.


 

Signal Questions

My local signal has ongoing reception problems. Why can’t you increase the power or move the antenna closer to my area?

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all broadcast signals in the United States, imposing strict regulations on where a station can broadcast from and at how much power. Every signal is limited by these regulations in order to avoid interference with other signals. In most cases, increasing the signal strength of one of our signals would cause interference with other signals.

Many of our signals are low-powered translators, which means they do not cover as large an area as full-power stations. Because of FCC rules, stations take precedence over translators. Therefore, if a translator causes interference with a station, it has to be taken off the air.

My local signal has been off the air for a few hours/days/weeks. What happened and are you aware that it’s off the air?

A signal may be off the air for several reasons. Often a translator must be taken off the air due to interference (see above question), technical issues such as a malfunctioning antenna or defective receiver, or extreme weather conditions such as high winds and heavy snow. We are usually aware of these outages since most of our signals are equipped with remote controls that report when a signal is off the air. However, even with the best technology, those systems occasionally break down. If your local signal has been down for an extended period of time, please contact us.

Please pray for my job situation. I am surrounded by negativity and condemnation. My coworkers know how I live my life and what I stand for. When asked how I am , I always say "I am blessed and all is well." I am told I am too happy and all is not well. I just want people to see Christ in me. God created me in HIS image. It is getting harder to go to work. I want God to use me so others will know the reward of serving him.

To all Prayer Warriors, After years of iving through very violent and abusive situations, God has blessed me with a wonderful husband. He accepts me for the person I am. We have been married for 3 months and I desire a child. I had my tubes tied 17 years ago and we do not have the money for a reversal.

I am dealing with a lot of pain at night that affects me daily. I went back to the doctor and he prescribed a medicine I had taken in the past. I gave it a shot and for one night I was able to sleep almost through the night without pain. Then last night I took the medicine again. This time I almost immediately experienced nausea then panic. I finally went to sleep only to awaken with the same pain about 3am. and I have not slept since. I would take off work but my boss has been so cruel to me and insisted I get a doctors excuse when it is an unscheduled day off which is not really required. He singles me out constantly and I do not understand why. I have prayed for this to change and that he would recognize how he discriminates against me. I would retire but I have no retirement and my Social security check would not even cover my mortgage. I pray he will have some compassion and the signs of change are in progress. I know God is faithful. I feel so weak and heartbroken. I am overwhelmed with my pain, my house is falling apart, my job, family and financial issues. I have so much sorrow lately. I miss my ladies group which we completed, when we shared I felt the compassion and prayers of my sisters in Christ. I have not been this down in a long time and it is such a burden. I am so depressed. I know God can do anything. I know he is faithful. I am lonely and even though I know God will never leave me or forsake me I am struggling with feeling alone. Please please pray for me

I recently spoke a lady going through the greatest trial of her life. Her husband committed suicide and this has left her devastated. She is going through the grieving process, as one would. She blaming herself because she didn't see the signs and she had no way of stopping him before he took his own life. Please lift her up in you prayers that God will give her the strength and faith to stand on His word and His promises. Pray that she feels God presence, as she feel so alone. Pray that she holds tight to Hebrews 13:5, He will never leave us nor forsake us. Also, that she will cling to Jeremiah 29:11, For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and no for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Pray that God will surround her with His unfailing and unconditional love. Praying that God will give her peace to look to Him in the midst of this trial. Strength to persevere through this trial. Willingness to bring it all to Him so she doesn't have to bear the weight of this hurt. Thank you all so much for rallying with me in praying for her. Have a blessed day.

Please say a prayer for our son, Jason. He is 39 years old. He has fought this battle since he was 18, and made some wrong choices in friends! He is a recovering drug addict, who really needs to ask God to help him, at this point in his life. He has battled addiction for many years, in and out of prison. He has left this area and gone to Florida for a "fresh start". He has been down the 2 1/2 weeks now! He has an 18 year old daughter there, he loves dearly and wants to make a difference in her life. He has not been in her life for many years. It has been a nightmare for both of them the past 2 weeks. Their calls are breaking my heart, and so far away makes it harder for my husband and I! I really am worried about both of them! Her name is Zoie! Please pray for them both! Their lives are so messed up right now! I pray they both can get their life on track. He was staying with her...but this has far from worked for them! He is now on the streets broke and homeless....and she is heartbroken because she could not help her Dad! Please pray that God will speak to them both! I so want them both to get their lives in order! This is our only child and Grandchild, and they mean the world to us! Please pray for them BOTH! and if I may ask this of you....Please say a prayer for my Husband and I, the stress of all this is breaking our hearts. We keep praying and give it to God! We thank God every day, that we have each other! I so believe in the power of prayers...and we need some now! Thank You for taking the time to read this. MOST OF ALL...Thank you for taking the time to pray for my Family and the trials we are going through! God Bless Us All...every day! and He does!!

Please pray for me during this difficult time in my relationship. I have had a couple of failed marriages and for the first time in my life I am truly In Love. Although I know he loves me, he has been going through a hard time. I think that he is scared and doesn't know how to handle this relationship. I think in the past when a relationship got to a certain point and he felt like he needed to run before things got serious. So please pray that God will reveal to him what love and commitment truly is and let him see that he has a godly woman that loves him unconditionally. Please pray for God to touch his heart and heal him inside...and only God knows what problems he has going on right now. Please pray that God blesses this relationship and will help us both to be strong. I am very depressed so please pray for healing, grace and love like only our Lord and Savior can give. Be Blessed!

I am going through one of the hardest times in my life we are struggling so much financially. Our kids are having to suffer because of our financial situation as well. I am working all the overtime I can but I cannot make ends meet. I am almost ready to give up actually I think I have already given up. My health is deteriorating so rapidly and I do not have the heart to tell my children or my spouse. In each day I actually think about if it would be easier if I were not here and they had the life insurance money to get out of drowning debt.

I have been battling depression for many years. Some days are harder than others, but as a mom I just keep on going. I am so tired. I feel there is nothing to look forward to. I wake up every day just hoping that I feel happy - I have forgotten what it is like to be happy. I am terrified my depression is getting closer to that \"black hole\" and I never want to go there again. It is the darkest, loneliest, scariest place you could ever imagine.

Please pray for my son "adopted by heart" who was unjustly terminated from a retail career with the same company for over 20 years.

Please pray for him to be able to bounce back from this major setback in his and his precious family's lives.
