In 1986, CJFW-FM Terrace received CRTC approval for rebroadcasters in Burns Lake on 92.9 MHz with 4.5 watts, Houston on 105.5 MHz with 3470 watts and Smithers on 92.9 MHz with 50 watts. Even though CJFW had only signed on in 1983, within two years, it had already added rebroadcast transmitters in Kitimat, Prince Rupert, Sandspit and Masset. CJFW was owned by J. Fred Weber, who also owned CFTK AM & TV in Terrace. Weber's CCF bio is at http://broadcasting-history.ca/personal ... drick-fred

Also in 1986, CKAL-AM Vernon was approved for an FM rebroadcaster in Armstrong/Enderby on 98.7 MHz with 140 watts. CKAL had originally signed on in 1978 on 1050 KHz with 10,000 watts day and 1000 watts night. FM rebroadcasters in Nakusp, New Denver and Kaslo were added in October 1981. CKAL switched call letters to CICF in 1987, switching to FM on November 28, 2001, as Sun FM.

In 2002, at 6:00 a.m., CHMJ-730 Vancouver "MOJO Radio" signed on with Talk Radio for Guys. The frequency had been running, still as CJNW, as a jockless modern rock format since July 19th, when the station returned after a five week absence spent servicing and replacing an aging transmitter and towers. The 16 months of All News had ended on May 28th at 5:00 a.m.
