94.9 CHRW Radio Western


94.9 CHRW Radio Western Ontario 94.9 CHRW is a London based campus radio owned by University Students Council at University of Western Ontario (UWO). Your Cure For Corporate Radio is the catchphrase used by the station. CFPL 980 was launched in 1971 by the student union at UWO broadcasting a six-hour program/week. Eventually it turned into a closed-circuit channel. In 1979 the union agreed to establish a new student radio and were ultimately granted a license by CRTC; the AM radio would broadcast on 610 KHZ using low power transmitter of 20-watts. On Jan 14, 1981 the station made it into the airs for the first time and used to remain on-air until the fall enters the student year. In June 1981 Radio Western was allowed to set up CHRW-FM with a 50 watt-transmitter.

The studios and transmission facilities were located in the University of Western Ontario. After carrying some test transmissions from the mid of October 94.9 CHRW was finally launched on Oct 31. In Feb 1987 the Effective Radiated Power was increased to 5,000 watts which was decreased to 3,000 watts at the end of Oct 1990 because of the interference faced by it coming from the laboratory equipment. The frequency was flipped from 94.7 to 94.9 MHz increasing the wattage to 3,500 watts in 2003. Transmitter site was also relocated at the same time. 25% of the content hosted by the station was Spoken word after an amendment in the license by CRTC in 2012.
