    CHON-FM engineering team working on upgrading the rural community transmitter facilities

    CHON-FM is experiencing severe technical problems at the main transmitter site in Whitehorse at the Grey Mountain site.

    This is leading to a very degraded 98.1MHz signal in main city as well as some signal issues in several outlying communities.

    Aklavik, Tsiighetchic, Mayo, Johnson's Crossing, Atlin, Lower Post, Good Hope Lake as well as Dease Lake might also notice audio drop-outs and noise.

    We are working on solutions to rectify these problems.

    Thank you for your patience and ongoing support.
