In 1949, CKLW Windsor increased power from 5000 to 50,000 watts using five 307 foot towers located 35 miles South of Windsor. The station had moved from 1030 to 800 KHz, a Canada/Mexico clear channel, in the great frequency shuffle of 1941. CKLW-FM had signed on in 1948.

In 1995, CFRY-AM Portage La Prairie, Manitoba, was granted a license for an FM rebroadcast transmitter, also in Portage La Prairie, with 27,000 watts on 93.1 MHz. The stated purpose was to improve night-time coverage to a very sparsely populated area to the South of Portage La Prairie.

In 2004, CJRY-FM Edmonton signed on as Shine-FM, with 100,000 watts on 105.9 MHz. Antenna height was approved by the CRTC for 138.5 metres, but ended up being 193 metres at a new transmitter site.

Also in 2004, CBU Vancouver was approved for an FM rebroadcast transmitter in Abbotsford on 101.7 MHz with 67 watts. The station already had rebroadcasters in Chilliwack and Harrison Hot Springs.
