Quad Cities, IA/IL

KMCS/KMCN - 94.7/93.1 Mac FM

One of the more unusual simulcasts in the United States, Country 93.1/94.7 The Eagle, flipped to Variety Hits at 1 PM Central on November 28, 2005 as 93.1/94.7 Mac FM. 94.7 KZEG in Clinton, IA changed call letters to KMCN (meaning Mac North), while 93.1 KWCC in Muscatine, IA changed its call letters to KMCS (for Mac South.)

What makes the simulcast so unusual is that there is a large gap between the two signals in Davenport, IA, which is in the heart of the "Quad Cities" market that rests along the Iowa/Illinois border. Despite that gap, the station's website billed itself as targeting the Quad Cities market. As the website explained on the day of the launch, "Both stations will be mirror-casting by playing the same playlist of songs at the same time. Because the stations are from Muscatine and Clinton they are called MaC." No, that's not a typo: the website refers to it as MaC in multiple references, though the logo had no such bizarre lettering distinction. I followed the lead of 100000watts.com and decided to simply refer to it as 94.7/93.1 Mac FM.
