FM first went on air on the 14th of November, 1931, on a 1050 kHz frequency. Later on, the station changed its frequency to 1053 kHz in 1978. From its coming into existence till now, the 2CA station has changed various locations in the area. Moving from 64 Northbourne Avenue to the second story of the Jolimont Building and then to Northbourne Avenue again. The office of the 2CA station had to be vacated and displaced in November 1993 after a car crashed into the Jolimont Building.
During the 1990s, Austereo, the official holder of 2CA and 104.7, and ARN, the official proprietor of 2CC and Mix 106.3, both formed a joint project proprietorship, including both the stations naming it Canberra FM Pty Limited and trading off both 2CA and 2CC to the Capital Radio Network. Since then, both stations 2CC and 2CA were displaced to a new location in Mitchell, which is still the current area of their transmission.
