CKDQ is a Canadian radio station that broadcasts a country music format at 910 AM in Drumheller, Alberta branded as 910 CFCW. The station is currently owned by Newcap Radio. CKDQ is the only station in Canada which broadcasts on 910 AM, a Regional broadcast frequency.

The station began broadcasting in 1958 as CJDV, until it changed to its current callsign in 1981. It is a Class B station broadcasting with a power of 50,000 watts, and using a two tower directional antenna daytime and a four tower directional antenna nighttime.
