CJMP 90.1 FM, Powell River's Community Radio wants to send a signal that can be heard. We've raised $12,000 for a new antenna and equipment. We need $15,000+ to pay certified installers to climb the Gallagher Hill Tower and install the new antenna.




CJMP - A Non Profit Community Radio Station
We're run by volunteers and only ever have staff if we receive grants that allow for paid positions. Our operating costs are covered by the generous donations of members and corporate sponsors. Now in our 5th year of operation and survival, our program schedule is expanding, our volunteer base is widening and our membership numbers are increasing.

Our small station is located above Striker's and the Westview Bowling Alley on Marine Avenue in Powell River, BC. Because our tower and antenna are also there - everything is near sea level. When you combine a 3 Watt transmitter with an oceanside antenna, their isn't much for broadcast coverage.


We have great local music, old blues & jazz, gardening, home grown DJs and local news shows - but you just can't hear us on the FM dial unless you're close to the station. Help us become a true FM station - not just web radio - and you'll become addicted to our great home-grown, commercial-free content.

By simply moving a new antenna to tower on Gallagher Hill, and buying equipment to transmit the signal from the station, a small 10 Watt increase will boost our signal coverage to all Powell River and the whole Powell River Regional District.


We just raised all the money we need for the new antenna and transmitter equipment. What we need now is the money to pay for Telus certified installers to climb the antenna and mount it properly.That will cost us over $15,000

Can you help us climb those final steps up the hill?

It's been many years of work and often seems like a mountain in front of us, but we're close now. So close.

With your help we'll get there together.
