Editorial Edited: AT 1:00 PM November 5th 2021 – KFIZ adds 100.7 FM to their station ID – No references online yet – Coming Soon?

Editorial Edited: AT 11:30 AM March 4th 2022 – KFIZ finally added 100.7 FM to the header – still no sign of 100.7 FM on the socials or the kfiz.com website?

RDS shows references to KFIZ and W264DN – it’s officially launched – perhaps they were doing finishing touches. The editorial on KFIZ’s new FM signal has been edited to show that KFIZ has begun showing their new FM signal – the last ID showing KFIZ without FM took place at 12 PM.

RDS shows references to KFIZ and KFIZ-FM instead of W264DN as the RDS shows in the car. It’s officially launched – perhaps they were doing finishing touches.

Reception Reports:

People in Waupun sadly hear V100 from Milwaukee during the daytime but at night time – KFIZ is heard loud and clear as a bell on 100.7 FM starting just before or after sunset & remains loud and proud until sunrise when it fades away from Waupun but is still super strong just 10 miles north of Waupun it appears to cut out during the daytime – on Highway 151 – just before the Randolph sign.

I’m glad to see KFIZ mentioning their brand new FM station on their radio station – that’s a start. Now the 2nd question is does KFIZ keep it’s current logo or a new logo or a revised to showcase their brand new station.

For a 250 watt station it’s got amazing coverage and the buzzing noises that plague AM are not present on FM and I truly thought I was listening to an internet stream – it sounded so good on the FM side – and for a station that is only running at 250 watts – it’s coverage is massive.

Huge Update: March 4th 2022 11:30 AM CST

Update: March 4th – 1 year to the date – KFIZ has updated their website to reflect the brand new 100.7 FM “Featuring 100 Years” banner underneath (See KFIZ Photo – Credit Goes To Mountain Dog Media) – They are currently on the air – which has been very rare – because they are working on moving to the original KFIZ building which still stands 100 years later – most notably in celebration of their 100 years on the air. It’s very likely they will be reusing the original KFIZ tower, and transmitter too – who knows – but what we do know is there’s no references to it on their social media pages – just one logo on their website which we included a screenshot above. The funny part is I’ve been hyping up KFIZ’s 100.7 FM signal since they got the construction permit in 2018 – and yes I did the same with 93.7 FM which caught both AM 1170 and AM 1450 off guard – not realizing that I had found out their call letters and the station’s information before they even talked about it.

The fun part is you can also do the same stunt – visit the FCC’s LMS and find out what stations are “coming soon” by selecting the construction permit page and it will tell you what’s going on and what stations are actually on a construction permit. The best part is you can also do the same in your market – just by finding out what stations are active construction permits via the FCC’s LMS and then start hyping it up on social media – even the staff with these stations translators can talk about it even if there is an Non Disclosure Agreement. Why and how is that Legal? Construction permits are public records and available for open records request your employer can’t force you to sign an NDA for a station that will be found on the LMS of the FCC. They do this as a form of trying to avoid false hope and feeling rushed – however legally once it’s approved – it’s public records so you can talk about your upcoming stations – it’s frowned upon big time but not legal if it’s available via a search on the LMS.
