WXHQ-LP (105.9 FM, "Radio Newport") is a non-commercial radio station licensed to the commnuity of Newport, Rhode Island. The station serves Newport and the greater Providence, Rhode Island, area.[2] The station is owned and operated by the Newport Music Arts Association, a non-profit organization.[3] It airs a Jazz/Freeform format that, according to the station's website, includes "jazz, blues, r&b, bossa nova, Afro-Cuban, lounge, soul, funk, reggae, ska, electronic, downtempo, acid-jazz, surf, world, country, folk, and even occasionally some rock".[4][5] The music played is almost exclusively instrumental and the station has a policy against playing songs featuring English language vocals.[1]

The station has been assigned the WXHQ-LP call letters by the Federal Communications Commission since May 31, 2001.[6] This is the first FCC-licensed low-power FM station in the state of Rhode Island.[7] WXHQ-LP is also the first public radio station licensed to Newport.[8]


Community involvement

The WXHQ-LP studios are located on in a small office on Marlborough Street.[1] The station's transmitter is located atop the Hotel Viking on Bellvue Avenue in downtown Newport.[9] This transmitter site includes a rooftop container garden used to promote sustainable agriculture and green living by collecting rainwater and growing food.[10]

Other community involvement activities of WXHQ-LP include providing music programming for the annual Newport Island Moving Co. dance festival[11], broadcasting the Newport Jazz Festival[3], and serving as a contributing sponsor each year for the Newport International Film Festival.[12]

FCC actions

On October 29, 2007, the FCC issued a $250 Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for WXHQ-LP to licensee Newport Music Arts Association.[13] The fine was levied because the station failed to file a timely license renewal application and did not provide an explanation for the late filing. The standard fine of $3000 was reduced because the licensee did file a renewal application before the actual expiration of the broadcast license.

The English word games are:

○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
