CIHW 100.3 with 50 watts ERP began broadcasting from Village-des Hurons. The station was licensed to Comité de la Radio Communautaire Huronne-Wyandot Inc.
On April 15, the CRTC approved the application by Comité de la Radio communautaire huronne Wyandot inc. to change the authorized contours of CIHW-FM by relocating its transmitter to another site in Wendake (formerly Village-des-Hurons) and by decreasing the EHAAT from 25 to 21.7 meters. Wyandot stated that it was necessary to relocate the transmitter as a result of the sale of the existing transmitter site and facility.
On January 17, the CRTC aproved the application by Comité de la Radio communautaire Huronne-Wyandot inc. to operate a Type B Native FM radio station in Wendake. The applicant operates the low-power, Native radio station CIHW-FM Wendake, and wished to operate the station as a regular-power station to improve both the signal’s quality and strength to more effectively reach a large share of its target audience. CIHW-FM would operate at 100.3 MHz (channel 262A) with an average ERP of 239 watts (maximum ERP of 400 watts with an EHAAT of 18.9 metres).

Effective September 1st 2019, we will only be adding new material to these station histories in exceptional circumstances. Our intent to chronicle the early days of these radio and television stations has been achieved, and many new sources and technologies, from the CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
