   You're now hearing "broadcasting from the Don UpChurch Studio's" on Vibe Country. You might be wondering what all that is   

   about. Well you are in the right place to get the skinny on that. We the owners of this radio station, Vibe Country used to work

   with a fellow named Don UpChurch. Don was with a country radio station, WQDK 99.3 Gatesville/Ahoskie NC. Don was the back

   bone of the radio station and the area that the station served. Don lost his battle with cancer in 2015. The station was sold to

   another owner before Don passed. The new owners moved the studios out of its orignal studio and building before he passed.

  Don had a big part in designing the new studio, but never got a chance to use it. So the new owners named the studio after him.

     The station had been sold again and this time the new owner passed from COVID in Dec of 2021. The stations ownership

  reverted/was sold back to the owner that previously owned the station. Nearly 6 months later a religous broadcaster bought the

 station. Once the FCC approval gives the ok to the sale, WQDK will no longer be country formated and owned/operated locally.

                   We here at Vibe Country have decided to name our studios in honor of our friend/colegue Don UpChurch.

                                    Don was working on a book, researching what happen to the Lost Colony, his book...

                                       "In Pursuit of Dorothie The Lost Colony Ship" Paperback, available on Amazon.

          This radio station, Vibe Country is modeled after a few country stations from the 1980's.minus having any on air talent.

  Those stations being WQDK Q-Country 99.3 Ahoskie NC, 96 KIX WKJX 96.7 Elizabeth City NC, Country 56 WGAI Elizabeth City

    NC and lastly the mother ship of all country music stations, a station that all country music radio stations modeled their formats 

                      after, WCMS-FM 100.5 / AM 1050 Norfolk Va. ( WCMS Joe Hoppel aircheck from the middle 80's

                                         https://digi.countrymusichalloffame.org/digital/collection/musicaudio/id/7688 )

    We hate what corporate radio has done to these legendary country radio stations. We hate what radio has become in general.

It is our hope that, even though we do not have any DJ's, we hope that you find this station resembling something from a wonderful

           time in radio, where we hope the spirit of the listed radio stations above continue to live on in some form or fashion.

 

                                      Below is information pertaining to our stations regarding our extreme low power,

                                         FCC Part 15 license by rule operation and the internet side of the operation.

 

Welcome to WVIB-DB 105.9 FM, The Vibe! &

WVIC-DB Vibe Country 850 AM Stereo, 106.9 FM,!


The FCC allows for non-licensed broadcasting so as long as FM's do not exceed 250uV per meter at 3 meters (9.84252) from the antenna and AM's are limited to 100 milliwatts with an antenna and ground lead to not exceed a total length of 3 meters (9.84252) .

 

Carrier current systems and transmitters employing a leaky coaxial cable as the radiating antenna may operate in the band 525-1705 kHz provided the field strength levels of the radiated emissions do not exceed 15 uV/m, as measured at a distance of 47,715/(frequency in kHz) meters (equivalent to Lambda/2Pi) from the electric power line or the coaxial cable, respectively. The field strength levels of emissions outside this band shall not exceed the general radiated emission limits in §15.209.

Operations at 850 khz are limited to 15uV per meter at 184 feet from the line being used as the carrier current system.

 

Stations of this nature can be commerical or non-commerical in nature. The coverage map indicates the maximum distance that these signal will be heard. The FM signal will be well within the red circle. Even though the signal strength is limited to 250uV at 3 meters from the antenna, the elevation at this location will allow the signal to travel unusally farther than normal low elevated setups.

The AM signal could possibly extend out along the contour of the powerlines, as far as the purple circle during the day and within the red and blue circles at night.
