CHOD-FM, branded as FM 92.1 EST ONTARIEN, is a radio station licensed to Cornwall, Ontario, which currently operates from studios in Casselman. Owned and operated by the Radio communautaire Cornwall-Alexandria cooperative, it is a non-profit community radio station. The station was licensed by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission on February 24, 1993[1] and officially launched on May 1, 1994.

On March 26, 2012, Radio communautaire Cornwall-Alexandria Inc., received CRTC approval to change the authorized contours of the French-language community radio programming undertaking CHOD-FM Cornwall by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 19,200 to 34,167 watts (maximum ERP of 45,600 to 60,000 watts), by changing the class from B to C1, by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 39 to 106.7 metres and by changing the transmission site. [2]

In October 2016, the station's studios moved to Casselman, in order to better serve and expand in all of its territory.

On April 18, 2017, Radio communautaire Cornwall-Alexandria Inc. submitted an application to add a new FM transmitter at Dunvegan, Ontario, to rebroadcast the programming of CHOD-FM Cornwall. If approved, the new transmitter would operate at 92.1 MHz with a proposed callsign CHOD-FM-1. [3]
