CKMW’s new transmitter fuzzes out Prairie Public

CKMW in Winkler is getting a transmitter boost that will get it decent coverage all across northeast North Dakota. This follows their switch to FM from the AM band, started last year.

Being on 88.9 MHz, It will probably interfere with fringe reception of KMPR Minot, particularly east of Turtle Mountain, a small blow to Prairie Public, though with alternative coverage available from KPPD Devils Lake, it’s not as big as when the CBC built its 89.3 transmitter in Winnipeg that fuzzes out KUND in Pembina, Cavalier, and Kittson Counties.

With data from Industry Canada, and their handy Longley-Rice generator! (And some thanks to Kevin McDougal)
