La Premiere Chaine To Add Whistler Transmitter
January 25, 2008 at 5:55 AM (PT)
The CRTC has approved a new transmitter for the CBC's French LA PREMIERE CHAINE affiliate CBUF-F/VANCOUVER to serve WHISTLER, BC. The new repeater will run with 240 watts at 103.1 FM in the ski resort city.
The Commission also approved the CBC's application to increase the power of its CBR-FM-1/CALGARY, the FM repeater of its RADIO ONE affiliate CBR-A. The boost from 1,700 to 2,800 watts is aimed at resolving poor reception in downtown CALGARY.
CJRT-FM, INC. got the agency's approval to change the service on the subcarrier of its Jazz CJRT (JAZZ FM91)/TORONTO from Korean to Hindi and Tamil.
Elsewhere, the agency denied 1158556 ONTARIO LTD.'s application for an additional low power repeater for its Religion CHIM/TIMMINS, ON at 102.3 FM in COCHRANE, ON because the licensee is not in compliance with annual report filing rules.
