KSIQ-1 Powers Up on Miguel

The KSIQ booster FM signed on in mid-March from Mt. San Miguel, putting a decent 700 W signal on 96.1 MHz into San Diego and its community of license, Santee. The station has a Top-40 format similar to that of Channel 933 FM. You might remember that the originating transmitter moved from its Imperial desert location in Brawley in late January to Campo.

KSIQ’s owners, Cherry Creek Radio, also closed the sister AM station in Brawley. According to the Imperial Valley Press, the station went silent and is now for sale.
