History

CKXL first went on the air on June 24, 1989 on the 101.5 FM frequency, with a temporary license. It owned a mobile broadcast unit which travelled throughout the French communities of Manitoba during the summer of 1989. The mobile unit had a low power transmitter with an 8-mile radius. During this trial run, Winnipeggers were able to listen to CKXL on June 30, July 1 and during Folklorama '89.
