WRVQ does indeed broadcast at 200,000 watts.  To my knowledge, it's the 4th
most powerful licensed FM radio station in the US.(WBCT 93.7 in Grand Rapids
the strongest at 320,000 watts and WOOD, also in Grand Rapids being around
260,000 watts)
The transmitter output is 38,000 watts (FM BE 35) going to a 12 bay antenna
with enough
gain to achieve the 200,000 watt status.

Hope that answered your question.
