    Burwash Landing back on-air

    After several major power failures on the Kluane Lake power grid, we lost in Burwash Landing one of the main satellite downconverters.

    This required a engineer to travel to the remote community over extremely icy and slippery roads to replace the broken piece of equipment.

    Thank you to everybody in the community that helped trying to get this problem resolved.

    To report any signal and or reception issues, please contact the station in Whitehorse (867) 668-6629 (option 4) or email
