CRTC OKs FM Rebroadcasters For CBX, Power Boost For CJUI
February 4, 2013 at 3:59 AM (PT)
The CRTC has approved the CBC's application to add low-power FM rebroadcasting transmitters for CBC RADIO ONE affiliate CBX-A/EDMONTON at EDSON, GRANDE CACHE, HIGH LEVEL, FORT VERMILION, and RAINBOW LAKE, AB. Each transmitter, replacing existing AM rebroadcasters, will use 50 watts average ERP.
The Commission also approved a power boost for VISTA RADIO LTD. Adult Hits CJUI (103.9 THE JUICE)/KELOWNA, BC from 10,000 to 36,800 maximum ERP at a new site, changing from Class C1 to Class C.
And 8045313 CANADA INC.'s application for a new AC AM at ST. CATHARINES, ON at 1220 AM was rejected due to lack of detail provided about programming and the potential that the station might target TORONTO with its additional Ethnic programming rather than serve the ST. CATHARINES area across LAKE ONTARIO. The previous occupant of 1220 AM, PELLPROPCO INC. Oldies-Italian CHSC-A/ST. CATHARINES, ON, lost its license over targeting Italian-speaking audiences in TORONTO.
