KAPL: Of course you are correct about legal ownership. However, they have always said they are “A ministry of Applegate Christian Fellowship.” The name “Applegate Media, Inc.” and the call letters were likely derived from the church name. http://www.kaplradio.org/
KKTT on 95.3: Do you have a time frame for this? I’m not aware of those calls being used on-air on 95.3 (which doesn’t necessarily mean they weren’t).
KROR: I’m not sure where Reliable Oregon Radio came from, but my brain wants to tell me I saw it in print somewhere. The 1985 Broadcasting Yearbook shows the calls as KRGL and the owner was Robert W. Larson.
KIQY: The Y as a 4 may seem like a stretch, but there was a KIOY in Hanford CA, also on 103.7, which predated KIQY.
