Signal Increase

CKXU 88.3 FM has officially been approved by the CRTC to start broadcasting at 2900 watts (we're currently only at 125 watts)! Our engineer is booked for June 2018 to facilitate the project build. After installation, we run a week of test signals to make sure everything is hunky dory, et voila! A signal upgrade to the stars!
