KJJQ's transmitter is located in the town of Volga, South Dakota, but the studios are in the nearby city of Brookings. Known as The Ranch AM 910, the station has a broad range transmitting across eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota, reaching the cities of Yankton, South Dakota, Webster, South Dakota, Chamberlain, South Dakota, Marshall, Minnesota, Olivia, Minnesota, and the communities between these points. The station was formerly in a historic train depot and went by the name Depot Radio. In 2005, the depot was sold and KJJQ relocated to the building now housing the other four commercial radio stations in Brookings.
