In the year 2000, the owner filed a petition to have a small change, i.e., moving the chief transmitter to a mountainous region as well as enhancing the power to almost 95 kilowatts.
This would result in more area coverage by providing Mesa, Apache Junction, and northern Tucson signals. The owner also did this to get popularity and increase sales.
