Application by Dufferin Communications Inc. for a broadcasting licence to operate an ethnic commercial FM radio station in Winnipeg to replace the ethnic commercial AM radio station CKJS Winnipeg.
The station would operate at 92.7 MHz (channel 224B) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 19,700 watts (maximum ERP of 35,000 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 154 metres).
The applicant proposes to broadcast, in each broadcast week, ethnic programming directed towards at least 19 cultural groups in no less than 16 different languages.
The applicant requests permission to simulcast the programming of the new FM station on CKJS for a period of three months from the date of implementation of the new station.
Further, pursuant to sections 9(1)(e) and 24(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the applicant requests the revocation of the licence of CKJS effective the end of the simulcast period.
Soon Winnipeg will be AMless with only CJOB 680 CBW 990 and CFRW 1290 being left on AM.
