This station was the second FM station and the fourth total radio station in the Douglas AZ./Sulphur Springs Valley area. KDAP's studio and transmitter are located approximately 2 miles from the U.S./ Mexico border. This station has good signal strength both in the United States and in Mexico. The call letters stand for Douglas/Agua Prieta, the towns on both sides of the border. KDAP-FM's sister station KDAP AM was sold in April 2015 to Alex Goodman who will continue to operate the AM station from their shared studios and transmitter site. [2]

In November 2015, Howard Henderson, the original owner and licence holder died after a short illness. His wife Donna took over the ownership and continues to operate this station.
