The FCC granted authority for Transfer of Control on January 21, 2011. The final agreement was signed on February 14, 2011. At that time, Elenbaas Media ceased to feed programming to the station. The new studios for Agnus Dei were not ready and the Internet STL was estimated to be two weeks out. The initial Welcome announcements were prepared and loaded onto an iPod®. The station began operation as KJCR (AM) at about noon on Tuesday, February 15, 2011.
Father Schneider's iPod® Touch provided programming for two weeks.

Arrangements were made to rent two rooms in the Sacred Heart Renewal Center, one for the main studio, the other for an office.

Most of the programming was to come from EWTN Radio, and the satellite dish could not block parking. In this photo, Jake is on the roof, looking for the best place to put the satellite dish, February 8, 2011.

A non-penetrating roof mount for the satellite dish was donated to the station. We brought it to the roof in pieces and assembled it on a cold February day.

Inside, the equipment for the station was arriving and being placed on a surplus desk. The console is an Arrakis ARC8. The automation software is Arrakis Digilink Extreme, February 15, 2011.

All the critical studio equipment is powered from a large UPS. At the top of the rack is the Sage Digital Endec, TFT EAS receivers, Barix Exstreamer 1000, Henry Stereoswitch, Cisco satellite receiver, Arrakis Bridge, and the Dell computer running the Arrakis automation software, February 15, 2011.
