Golden West Radio is giving its brand of "Community Service Radio" a boost at five of its FM radio stations in Canada with new high-power Harris HPX tube transmitters. The Golden West Radio network comprises 40 FM and AM radio stations serving small and medium-sized communities across the Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta provinces in central and western Canada.The broadcaster is launching new radio stations in the Estevan and Weyburn markets, and has been approved for power increases at two existing stations (CFEQ in Winnipeg and CFIT in Airdrie). All four sites will install HPX20 (20kW) models with Harris DigitCD exciters. A fifth station, CKUV in Okotoks, will install a Harris HPX30 (30kW) model with a DigitCD to replace an aging non-Harris transmitter.
Listener Driven Radio has signed six major international stations and networks and a number of USA-based broadcasters.
