August 28, 2009 at 1:31 PM (PT)
The CRTC has approved COGECO DIFFUSION’s application to increase the power of French Top 40/Rhythmic CFGE (RYTHME 93.7)/SHERBROOKE, QC from 5,612 watts to 25,550 watts maximum ERP at a new location with greater height.
Also approved by the CRTC was RADIO MF CHARLEVOIX’s application for a new French-language type B low-power community FM in SAINT-HILARION, QC with additional transmitters in LA MALBAIE, BAIE-SAINT-PAUL, PETITE-RIVIERE-SAINT-FRANCOIS and SAINT-SIMEON. The license will expire on AUGUST 31st, 2011, a shorter term than usual, because of regulatory non-compliance at the licensee’s CIHO/SAINT-HILARION.
