CIKX-FM is a Canadian radio station broadcasting in Grand Falls, New Brunswick at 93.5 MHz and 5,300 watts.[1] CIKX was originally a repeater of CJCJ in Woodstock until the 2000s when the station opened its studios.

In April 2000, CIKX began airing programming separate from CJCJ. Studios and offices are located at 399 Broadway Boulevard in Grand Falls. On June 7, 2000, Telemedia Radio Atlantic Ltd. received CRTC approval to add a transmitter for CIKX-FM Grand Falls at Plaster Rock using the facilities of the CJCJ Woodstock rebroadcasting transmitter, CJCJ-2 Plaster Rock. As a result of the change, the CJCJ rebroadcasters CJCJ-1 Perth/Andover and CJCJ-2 Plaster Rock were deleted.[2]

On April 12, 2007, Astral Media Radio Atlantic Inc. received approval to operate a transmitter for CIKX-FM at Plaster Rock operating on 91.7 MHz with an effective radiated power of 50 watts.[3] The new transmitter would replace the existing AM transmitter (CJCJ-2) at that location. The AM transmitter was inefficient, worn-out and difficult to maintain. The AM transmitter site was in a low-lying area. The new FM transmitter would be located in an area with an elevation for line-of-sight coverage.

On February 4, 2008, Astral Media Radio Atlantic Inc. received approval to change the frequency of CIKX-FM-1 Plaster Rock from 91.7 MHz to 88.3 MHz.[4]
