Kanesetake Radio Station May Lose Signal
Written by Paul on May 10, 2018
Our sister radio station in Kanesetake is facing an uncertain future because of a new application in front of the CRTC. CKHQ community radio has been operating at 101.7 FM for the last 31 years. It is authorized by the CRTC but it is considered an unprotected signal. However a group in nearby Lachute has applied for a liscence for a 300 watt radio station on the very same frequency. CKHQ broadcasts currently with a 50-watt transmitter and can only be heard in the community. A station that is 6-times as powerful and just 27 kms away, would certainly overwhelm the Kaenesetake radio station.
