    What can you all get on 100.3 FM?

    Here in Vermilion, OH it’s a good DX freq with no locals on this channel, I get in order from most to least common:

    WNIC/Detroit, MI (AC) “Fresh 100.3”
    WGYY/Meadville, PA (County) “Froggy 100.3”
    WCLT/Newark, OH (Country) “T-100”
    WQON/Grayling, MI (Classic Rock) “Q-100.3”



    In East Tennessee it’s a solid WCYQ. I’ve caught this facility off the air a couple of times (not since Journal/Scripps has owned it)and had WVVR, Hopkinsville KY



    Here in Calgary, Alberta – nothing. Very occasionally receive CFBR in Edmonton when there is some tropo enhancement in that direction.



    In the Orlando FL market, top rating, spanish tropical-top40, IHeart Media, WRUM-HD1, Rumba 100.3FM. Also, in HD-2, Christian music/talk, Reach Radio, and in HD-3 spanish news format Noticel.

    Here in the Wyoming Valley of Northeast PA, a ten watt translator for ‘Good News’ WRGN (88.1) Sweet Valley, PA is heard at 100.3 on any half-decent FM radio.

    W262AI is licensed to Forty Fort, Etc. PA but I’m not sure where ‘Etc.’ is. The 10 watts covers the Wilkes-Barre area well from it’s perch atop Penobscot Knob at 915 feet above average terrain.

    In Belleville, ON, it is usually difficult to get anything on 100.3 due to the local adjacent channel CHCQ 100.1, but some days, Ottawa’s Majic 100 (CJMJ) manages to make itself heard.



    Greensboro NC has CHR WMKS “Kiss”. This station has a strange history. If you go by the current format, it was a very popular country station that got moved to the big city and changed to urban, then Rhythmic CHR, then just CHR before it got upgraded to a better frequency. If you go by the frequency, it was beautiful music prior to 1985, then MOR, then adult contemporary, then classic rock, then hot country. The station swapped with an alternative rocker that had a lousy signal but changed that station to a more mainstream sound as “The Buzzard”. As “The Buzzard” it eventually went more active and became “The Buzz”, then the frequency swap came but “The Buzz” went alternative.

    In the Mid-Hudson Valley , NY 100.3 is the northern fringe of yet another NYC FM . This time it’s CHR, Z100 WHTZ, Newark & New York City. By the time the signal reaches my home in Hyde Park it is beyond the fringe. Although I can hear enough to definitely ID the station , it is too weak and choppy to be listenable.

    KSWD Los Angeles the Sound.


    EDM radio 87.9

    Here on Mississippi Coast (Gulfport Biloxi Metro) we can pick up interference between WNSL (SL100) out of Hattiesburg and KLRZ (ESPN 100.3) out of New Orleans. But most of the time it is KLRZ comes in.



    Here in MAINE 100.3 is dominated by Author Stephen King’s WKIT in Bangor…


    Johnny Caudle

    iHeart Media’s CHR/Top 40 WMKS 100.3 FM (Kiss FM) out of High Point/Greensboro, North Carolina.

    In Ottawa, KS, we get Topeka’s Rock Leader, V-100. KDVV Topeka.



    In northern VA, I get DC’s WBIG with a classic rock format; used to be oldies. HD-2 is some kind of a Asian format with Chinese or Japanese music and a strange audio sound.



    Cincinnati, Ohio: Urban Oldies “Old School 100.3” Ratings are anywhere from a 2-share to a 3.5. It’s a Class A 3,000 watt station. Owned by Radio One.

    What’s noteworthy about this station? From 2006-2012 this was an Urban AC station known as “MOJO 100.3.” It stunted with Christmas music from November 6, 2012 until January 2nd, 2013. After the Christmas music stunt ended, the station flipped to a sports format as “FM 100 The Fan;” Radio One’s first attempt at sports talk radio. It was one of the original affiliates of CBS Sports Radio. There was local programming in AM and PM drive.

    The station could not secure play-by-play rights for any of the major college / professional teams in Cincinnati; all were either under contract with iHeartMedia, or opted to renew with iHeart. FM 100 The Fan was limited to Miami Redhawks basketball, Cincinnati Cyclones minor league hockey, and some sports broadcasts from Compass Media.

    As a sports station it garnered a 0.2 rating in it’s first month; and a 0.1 every month afterwards. Radio One finally pulled the plug on sports, after only seven months, on July 30, 2013, and flipped to it’s current “Old School” format.
