CRTC Shoots Down Moose FM Power Increase Bid
July 31, 2007 at 12:12 PM (PT)
The CRTC has rejected the application of 663975 B.C. LTD. to increase the power of its Classic Hits CKFU (100.1 MOOSE FM)/FORT ST. JOHN, BC from its present low power status of 23 watts to 20,000 watts.
Both the CANADIAN ASSOCIATION OF BROADCASTERS and STANDARD RADIO had opposed the move, arguing that allowing the station to upgrade would constitute a "backdoor" method of obtaining a full-power license without the same regulations and restrictions that regular applicants would have for the same facility.
