CRTC OKs Move For Two Newcap Fredericton FMs
February 11, 2013 at 4:38 AM (PT)
The CRTC has approved NEWCAP's application to increase the power and move the transmitters of planned Top 40 CIHI and Classic Hits CFRK (92.3 FRED-FM)/FREDERICTON, NB. CIHI will increase maximum ERP from 50,000 to 100,000 watts, moving from 150 meters at HAMTOWN CORNER, NB to 137.5 meters at MOUNT HOPE, NB. CFRK will make the same move, increasing from 93.000 to 100,000 watts and increasing from 124.8 to 137.5 meters.
The move is attributed by NEWCAP to reducing radiation in HAMTOWN CORNER, where residents have complained about RF from three radio stations nearby, including CIHI and CFRK.
