Station History:
January 2000
- FCC creates new license class for low power non-commercial radio stations called LPFM.
June 2000
- Window for California appications for a Low Power FM radio station open,
and filed by KQRP.

Fall 2000 - After the filing window closed, legislation slid through on an Appropriations Bill that disqualifies two-thirds of the applicants based on deliberately false data. FOTE's frequency gets the axe due to "third adjacency" rules. Application in limbo status.

October 2002 - A new window for LPFM amendments open to allow those stations who lost their frequency to file for a new one under the new rules. We filed the amendment.

June 2003 - Construction Permit was granted to KQRP by the FCC on 6-30-03 for a LPFM 100 watt non-commercial station to operate in the town of Salida on the frequency of 106.1 fm.

Note: July 2003 -The MITRE Report released. The MITRE Corporation did an independent study on challending the validity of the engineering data presented to Congress about LPFM interference.
