In CANADA, CONCORDIA STUDENT BROADCASTING CORP. was denied a low power transmitter on 107.9 FM with 100 watts to rebroadcast campus station CJLO-A/MONTREAL in downtown MONTREAL. The nested transmitter would have interfered with VERMONT PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial WVPS/BURLINGTON, VT, which is heard in MONTREAL and serves as the market's de facto NPR affiliate. The CRTC ruled that the applicant had not "demonstrated a compelling technical need justifying the proposed amendment" and that "the use of one of the last known frequencies for a nested FM transmitter may not be the best use of frequency 107.9 MHz in a radio market characterized by a scarcity of available frequencies."
