Four young men from Victoria formed Western Canada Radio Supply Company to build and sell radio receivers.  Kenneth G. Moffatt was Manager and they opened a store on Fort Street that also housed a 5 watt transmitter.  It was on the air as CHCE for a few months broadcasting only music.

Official records show the license was terminated in 1925.
