The Powell River Community Radio Society (PRCRS, operating CJMP 90.1 FM) are very happy to announce that as part of Powell River Community Forest Ltd (PRCF) recommendations for additional 2015 grants from the Community Forest Reserve Fund, a motion was passed on September 23, 2015 by the PRCF board of directors recommending that CJMP Powell River Community Radio be awarded $5,750 as a partial contribution towards purchase of new equipment and relocation of a new transmitter to ensure coverage for entire community.
This was the final piece of money that was requested for the Signal Strength project, and with this grant, our “Signal Boost” or “Tower Relocation” fund now has enough money
to purchase all the required equipment. The only thing left to account for is the additional $10,000 that’s estimated to come from a Telus tower rental agreement. They’ve finished the Site Analysis Study – we now have to wait for Rogers to finish one of their installs. The dream of having CJMP more easily available to the entire community is becoming a reality!

Please note that while we are a non-profit organization, we do not have charitable status, and so receipts from donations are not tax-deductible.
We’re also now set up at First Credit Union to accept Pre-Authorized Credit (automatic deductions from bank accounts). Just bring a void cheque and your photo ID to the front counter at First Credit Union in Powell River. They have forms ready to go for CJMP!
Our friends at Townsite Brewing have selected CJMP as their Growler Program Recipients! For the month of September a portion of every Growler purchased goes to CJMP. Since this program began, over $18,000 in contributions have been made. In fact the very first time this program started, CJMP was chosen by customers as the recipient!
Congratulations to Townsite Brewing on your success and thank you for all your contributions to the community!
