CRTC OKs Extension Of CKXR Simulcast
May 3, 2007 at 5:46 AM (PT)
Signal coverage problems have resulted in a year-long extension of CRTC permission for STANDARD AC CKXR (91.5 EM EZ ROCK)/SALMON ARM, BC (in the SHUSWAP LAKE area east of KAMLOOPS) to simulcast on its former 580 AM frequency.
CKXR formally moved to FM on NOVEMBER 27 and had permission to simulcast on AM for three months, but reception trouble in several communities prompted STANDARD to ask for an extension while it prepares applications for FM boosters in those areas. As a result, the CRTC has extended the simulcast permission to FEBRUARY 27, 2008.
