About Your Hometown Radio Station
KDCQ (92.9 FM, “K-Dock 92.9”) is a radio station licensed to serve Coos Bay, North Bend Oregon, United States. The station, established in 1995, is owned by Bay Cities Building Company, Inc.
Bay Cities Building Company, Inc., received the original construction permit from the Federal Communications Commission for a new FM station broadcasting with 2,500 watts of effective radiated power on a frequency of 93.5 MHz on September 1, 1994. The new station was assigned the KDCQ call sign by the FCC on December 1, 1994. KDCQ received its license to cover from the FCC on July 31, 1995.
In 2005 and 2006, KDCQ was part of a five-station frequency swap arranged by Salem Communications to allow it to move KAST-FM at 92.9 MHz in Astoria, Oregon to sign-on new station KTRO-FM at 93.1 MHz in Portland, Oregon. KDCQ moved down the dial from 93.5 to 92.9 MHz, KKNU moved up from 93.1 to 93.3 MHz, KPDQ-FM moved from 93.7 to 93.9 MHz and reduced its effective radiated power from 100,000 to 50,000 watts, KTIL-FM moved from 94.1 to 94.3 MHz, and KAXQ moved way up from 94.3 to 99.7 MHz.
To accomplish its part of the move, KDCQ applied to the FCC in March 2005 for authorization to change broadcast frequencies from 93.5 to 92.9 MHz, relocate its transmitter site, change the antenna’s height above average terrain to 160 meters (520 ft), and increase its effective radiated power to 4,500 watts. The FCC granted the station a new construction permit to authorize these changes on July 14, 2005. KDCQ made the switch to 92.9 MHz on January 28, 2006, operating under the program test authority granted by the construction permit. KDCQ received a license to cover these changes on May 2, 2006.
