In 1931, 10AT Trail was signed on as an experimental station by COMINCO employees, as a personal project. The station soon went commercial, as CJAT on 1200 KHz with 50 watts, moving to 910 KHz in 1934 with 250 watts, increasing to 1000 watts in 1936. Taylor, Pearson & Carson were hired to manage the station in 1937. And the station moved to its long time home of 610 KHz, still with 1000 watts, in the Great Frequency Shuffle of 1941. The move to FM came in 1994 when the leased AM transmitter site had to be vacated. There had previously been a CJAT-FM, but it was sold to the CBC in the mid-1970s.
