CKQV-FM is a radio station in Vermilion Bay, Ontario, Canada. The station's main studio and transmitter are located in Vermilion Bay, with repeaters in Kenora, Dryden and Sioux Lookout. Branded as Q104 after its repeaters, the station was locally owned and operated by Norwesto Communications, Ltd. The station broadcasts a Contemporary hit radio format.
On April 13, 2004, Norwesto received approval from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to operate a new FM radio station at Vermilion Bay along with repeaters.
On September 1, 2010 Q104 and Norwesto Communications were sold to Golden West Broadcasting.

On January 29, 2010, Norwesto received approval to change Sioux Lookout's CKQV-FM-3 frequency from 104.5 MHz to 104.1 MHz.
On May 7, 2012, Golden West applied to change the frequency of CKQV-FM-1 Dryden from 104.5 MHz to 104.3 MHz. This is due to ongoing interference with the 104.5 signal from associated repeater CKQV-FM-2 in Kenora as received in the Vermilion Bay area. This proposed frequency change eliminates that interference. The CRTC approved Golden West's application on October 1, 2012.
