WCHQ (1360 AM, Super Q) was a radio station licensed to serve Camuy, Puerto Rico. The station was owned by Aurio A. Matos (President and General Manager of the station). The station was assigned the WCHQ call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on December 23, 1970.

The company has had multiple ownership changes. Camuy Broadcasting Corporation sold WCHQ to Del Pueblo Radio Corporation in 1984. At that time, the station was known as "13-Q AM". On July 25, 2000, Del Pueblo Radio Corporation announced that it would sell WCHQ to Aurio A. Matos. The deal was completed on July 30, 2000. On December 28, 2003, after 33 years on the air, WCHQ went silent and was forced to shut down. On April 5, 2004, the station's license was cancelled and the call sign deleted from its database by the FCC.
