WKQC (104.7 MHz "K104.7") is a commercial FM radio station in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is owned by the Beasley Broadcast Group and it plays an adult contemporary radio format. For most of November and December, it switches to all-Christmas music. WKQC's studios are located on South Boulevard in Charlotte.
WKQC has an effective radiated power (ERP) of 100,000 watts, the maximum for most FM stations in the U.S. The transmitter site is in East Charlotte, off Hood Road. It broadcasts in the HD Radio format. The HD2 digital subchannel airs a "70s hits" format, while WKQC-HD3 is a simulcast of sister station WBCN 1660 AM's sports radio programming.
The station receives co-channel interference from WNOK in Columbia, South Carolina, just 75 miles south of Charlotte. The Chester and Lancaster, South Carolina areas are affected the most with interference from both stations. Both WKQC and WNOK use directional antennas. Despite this, the stations' overlap causes listener problems in areas of Northern South Carolina, and closer to Charlotte on some summer days when tropo interference is strong.
