KCFJ/KCNO Radio Station

The Alturas Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate KCFJ/KCNO radio station for being one of our November 2019 Chamber members-of-the-month.  KCNO went on the air in 1951 as a 1,000 watt AM radio station.  In later years it was upgraded to 5,000 watts of power and is still broadcasting today, but under the call letters of KCFJ on AM 570.  More changes occurred during the past 30 years to the radio station in order to keep up with modern programming and an ever-changing customer listening base.  A 704 foot AM radio tower was erected 11 miles south of Alturas on Highway 395 in the early 1980's which is used only during daylight hours to broadcast the AM station 570 (KCFJ).  The original AM tower is still standing at the main studio 2 miles north of Alturas on Highway 395 and is still operational.  An FM station was put on the air in the early 1990's.  The original "KCNO" call letters were eventually switched from the AM to the FM (94.5) and new call letters of KCFJ were approved for the now AM station side (570).  Today, KCFJ AM broadcasts an Adult Standards type music format while KCNO FM 94.5 plays #1 Country hits 24/7.  From the first day it went on the air, KCFJ/KCNO was always there to serve the communities interest and truly enjoys hearing from their dedicated listeners whether you live locally or just traveling through the area.  If you have any questions feel free to call KCFJ/KCNO at (530) 233-3570.
