CRTC OKs One New FM Transmitter, Rejects Another

The CRTC approves GROUPE RADIO ANTENNE 6 INC.'s application to add a low-power transmitter at ALMA, QC for its French AC CKYK (KYK 95.7 FM)/ALMA. The new repeater will use 96.3 FM.
But the agency rejected MANITOULIN RADIO COMMUNICATION INC.'s application to add a low power transmitter for Country CFRM (THE ISLAND)/LITTLE CURRENT, ON at SUDBURY, ON. The CRTC said that the local programming of CFRM would be of little interest to SUDBURY residents 100 km away, despite the station's position that many SUDBURY residents own vacation homes on MANITOULIN ISLAND, where CFRM broadcasts.
