Brandon's CKLQ-880 Wants to Move to FM and Simulcast AM

Postby jon » Wed Jun 22, 2016 7:49 am

The Edmonton CRTC Hearing in late September, discussed in another post, will also hear an application from CKLQ in Brandon to move to FM but keep its 880 KHz transmitter on the air as a simulcast. There is no planned change in the Country music format.

12. Riding Mountain Broadcasting Ltd.
Brandon, Manitoba
Application 2016-0342-3

Application by Riding Mountain Broadcasting Ltd. for a broadcasting licence to operate an English-language FM commercial radio station in Brandon to replace its AM commercial radio station CKLQ Brandon, Manitoba.

The station would operate at 91.5 MHz (channel 218C) with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of 325.6 metres).

The applicant wishes to maintain the AM transmitter as a rebroadcasting transmitter for the new FM service. The AM transmitter would operate at the current technical parameters, namely at 880 kHz (class B) with a daytime and night-time transmitter power of 10,000 watts.

The applicant proposes to maintain the station’s current Country music format.

The Commission notes that 91.5 MHz will become available in Brandon when Native Communications Inc. changes the frequency of its transmitter CIWM-FM Brandon, as authorized in CINC-FM Thompson and its transmitter CIWM-FM Brandon - Licence amendment and technical changes, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2016-100, 16 March 2016.

The Commission may withdraw this application from the public hearing if it is not advised by the Department of Industry, at least 20 days prior to the hearing, that the application is technically acceptable.

Applicant’s address:

624 14th Street East
Brandon, Manitoba
R7A 7E1
