CFTX-FM (Capitale Rock) is a French-language radio station based in Gatineau, Quebec. CFTX's studios are located on Jean-Prioux Avenue in Gatineau, while its transmitter is located near Autoroute 5.

After receiving approval in 2005,[1] the station was launched in 2006 with a Contemporary Hit Radio format as Tag Radio and later, Tag Radio X, after its sister station in Quebec City, CHOI-FM. It changed to a modern rock format as Tag Radio X, in 2009. On July 26, 2010, CFTX changed its format to its current mainstream rock format.[2] but left most of the newer French rock tunes alone. It is the fourth French station in Ottawa/Gatineau. It is one of four rock stations in Ottawa along with classic rocker CHEZ-FM, alternative rocker CILV-FM (Live 88.5) and blues-rock station CIDG-FM (Dawg FM), but is the only rock station in Ottawa to broadcast in French. The market's former English-language Active Rock outlet, CKQB-FM, changed formats to Top 40/CHR on March 31, 2014, leaving CFTX-FM as the only station in the market programming contemporary mainstream (non-alternative) rock.

CFTX has a low power repeater (CFTX-FM-1) in Buckingham at 107.5 FM.

The 96.5 FM frequency was formerly occupied by a low-power tourist information radio station, CFDT in Ottawa, which began operations in the early 1990s [3] and was also used in 2002 for a special event radio programming at 96.5 MHz in Gatineau with the callsign CIRC.[4]
