Engineering Updates

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

    We are installing new software and firmware solutions as well as increase the quality of our stereo broadcast systems.

    CHON-FM will be broadcasting across the entire network in stereo by the end of this summer.

    During the next several months we will have occasionally system outages for short periods of time in various communities and we appreciate your patience during those necessary maintenance windows.

    We are moving from an older audio format (MPEG-2 - QPSK) to a newer configuration (MPEG-4 - 8PSK) in the last 8 communities on our satellite broadcast network systems.

    With the latest audio-over-IP based technology in place since summer 2018, we have also been able to cover live many community and sporting events across the North, bringing the content to all of our First Nations Communities and enable our audience to participate in these events, even if they were not able to actually attend.

    If you notice any other off-air problems, or have any comments for us, please e-mail:
