CKOD-FM is a French language Canadian radio station located in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec, approximately 50 kilometres southwest of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Owned and operated by Radio Express (an independent company owned by Robert Brunet), it broadcasts on 103.1 MHz with an effective radiated power of 3,000 watts (class A) using an omnidirectional antenna.

The station has a hot adult contemporary format and identifies itself as "FM 103".

Known as CFLV until 1991, the station was on the AM band on 1370 kHz from 1961 to 1994, at which point the station moved to FM band on 102.9 MHz.[1] However, strong interference by CITE-FM-1 in Sherbrooke, which broadcasts on the neighbouring frequency of 102.7 MHz from Mount Orford (approximately 170 kilometres east) forced a change to the current 103.1 MHz very shortly after the initial move to FM.[2]
