KQOC Back to Full Power

Strong wind gusts took KQOC 88.1, Gleneden Beach, off the air on Feb. 11, destroying the All Classical antenna atop Cape Foulweather. The permanent replacement antenna was hoisted to the top of our 150 foot tower last night, July 2nd, and KQOC is now back on full power! Thanks for your patience while we completed this […]


KQAC Tower Repairs
