April 24, 2012 at 4:12 AM (PT)
The CRTC has approved the application by CKPM-FM RADIO LTD. to increase power at its proposed Triple A CKPM/PORT MOODY, BC.
The station will increase ERP from 470 to 540 watts using a directional antenna and will now have until NOVEMBER 30th to build the facility and get on the air. The application was approved over the objections of CORYS and SOUTH ASIAN BROADCASTING CORP. INC., which contended that the new facility would expand CKPM's coverage beyond PORT MOODY, COQUITLAM, and PORT COQUITLAM into BURNABY and NEW WESTMINSTER, closer to central VANCOUVER.
