    yes. this blows as 106.3 doesn't come in near as good as 105.1 does.

    I may be weird but I like the commercials and the personality of DJ's. If I just wanted to listen to straight music I would plug in my Ipod and not pay the monthly fees of satellite radio.

    This sucks because I could get 105.1 from just south of Clear Lake to Des Moines without hearing the same song 5 times.

    There are some radio commercials that drive me crazy. Any version of the Jared's jewelry ads, Iowa Diamond ads, and Joe Clemson auto and his stupid repeating of approved by joe.com ending. Every time I hear it I want to give a punch in the face approved by Rulzzz.com

    That's impressive I loved channel Q and I struggled to get it in 20 miles away from Ames in Bondurant

    Re: channel Q105.1

    So is 105.1 the ISU affiliate still, or has that moved to 106.3 too? I guess I can still listen on 100.3, but like other posters have stated, 105.1 has a pretty decent range compared to 106.3

    I kind of want to know that too. Do I have to change the channel from 106.3 to listen to the Cyclones?


    I could look it up, but I'm feeling kind of lazy right now.

    I doubt it since it is already on 100.3 in Des Moines.

    Are they maybe going after KGGO and trying to put the last nail in that coffin since Cumilus has ruined KGGO.

    Re: channel Q105.1

    DSM radio keeps getting worse and worse and worse. 107.5 literally plays music on a 3-hour loop, 105.1 and 106.3 have supposedly flipped, I can't ever listen to 103.3 without hearing "Tom Sawyer" or "Comfortably Numb" or, as my wife puts it, the "cash register song" and the "clocks song" (you probably know what I'm talking about), and then there's KGGO (which we call K-G-G-GONE) which is nothing without Lou, Round Guy and Heather.

    On another note, 106.3 seems to change formats every few years...must be a cursed frequency or something.

    Why not just stream Pandora to your car radio. Saves a lot of money.

    Don't forget GNR. My wife swears that the DJs are mandated to play one Guns N Roses song every hour.

    105.1 will still have cyclone games. This move is stupid and makes no sense.

    Re: channel Q105.1

    105.1 used to be Hot FM, before 107.5 came on the air, and it played boy bands and Britney Spears basically all day long.

    This will take me a while to get use to, as I did listen to both 106.3 and 105.1 (until non-stop Christmas) and now I will have to get remember they are opposite..

    Re: channel Q105.1

    I heard a Black Eyed Peas song and then a Tom Petty song tonight on 105.1. That was different. On 106.3 they played the typical 105.1 stuff like Foo Fighters. We'll all get used to it so don't worry. I think they had 2 Dotfests before the format changed.
