It is uncertain when the station was licensed and then began broadcasting. According to the CRTC’s records, CKUJ had its licence renewed in 1986.
On October 22, Club de Récréation Kuujjuaq Pinguatisijingit received CRTC approval to change CKUJ’s frequency from 90.1 MHz to 97.3 MHz, to increase the effective radiated power from 0.28 watts to 842 watts, and to relocate the transmitter to a site 0.5 kilometres to the west of Kuujjuaq.
On June 21, the CRTC again approved CKUJ-FM’s move from 90.1 to 97.3 MHz. This time a power increase would be for 394 watts. The transmitter would be moved to a new site 300 metres west of Kuujjuaq.

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.
