Today the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) announced that an application by Clear Sky Radio Inc. to bring a new FM radio station to Strathmore, Alberta will be heard at a Public Hearing on September 25, 2014 in Gatineau, Quebec.

Our proposal is for a country music format supported by significant local news and community content. Our station would broadcast at 104.5 FM.

Our proposed station would be known as 104.5 The Wolf. Details of our full application are now available at http://1045theWolf.com. The public is invited to submit comments and support until August 25, 2014.

For further information, please contact:

Paul Larsen, President
Clear Sky Radio Inc.
Email: paul@clearskyradio.com
Phone: (403) 388-2910

No harm in recycling an application: Pretty easy to do a find and replace for the frequency and market.

They will, however, need to have a pattern that is largely east, west and south of the proposed transmitter site so as not to affect CAB-K's Rock 104 (CKJX-FM 104.5) in Olds.

I forgot about that - http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2008/db2008-194.htm

It was 102.7 though, which is likely too close to Newcap's XL-103 (103.1).

Regardless, it looks like 102.5 is available. http://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/fmq?s ... W=W&size=9

I expect Newcap to intervene as an opponent to the application. I think they'll view Strathmore as Q-91 (910 AM) territory, not just because of the station's transmitter being nearby (35 miles east of Calgary).

Not unlike my comments when Tiessen Media got approval for 106.1 FM in Airdrie, I don't think Strathmore has the business community needed to support a local radio station.

How long until someone takes a run at 100.3, the "last" frequency available in Calgary?

This application looks to be a rerun of Clear Sky's failed Calgary application from a few yeras ago.

I sure don't see enough advertising dollars in Strathmore to support any kind of a new station.

There's nothing unique about a Country music station in this area.
