WKQK History
New Owner Closes On WMEL    1-23-16
321 Corporation has closed on the sale of Rama Communications, Inc. WMEL-AM 1300. The station will now be known as WKQK-AM 1300.The contract says $20,000 of the purchase price will be paid directly to the FCC to cover Rama’s outstanding debt to the agency.

In January 2016, 321 Corporation acquired Radio Station WKQK in Brevard County. The station is now "Radio 1300 - All Local - All the Time". It is broadcasting all-local (Brevard County) news all day from 5AM-7PM as "News Radio 1300", and all-local music all night from 7PM-5AM as "Music Radio 1300". The station streams 24/7 in full fidelity stereo at www.Radio1300.com. WKQK was originally licensed to serve the Cocoa Beach area and the Space Center in 1959 as WRKT, "Rocket Radio." At that time, it could only broadcast during the daytime and only with a power of  500 watts. In the 1960s, it was granted permission by the FCC to upgrade its power so that it could become a regional radio station and provide service to all of Brevard County. It was also granted permission to broadcast 24/7.
