1610 CHHA Toronto going silent
There’s soon to be another silent AM station in CANADA – but this one’s not moving to FM. CHHA (1610 Toronto) was supposed to go silent on November 30, after Industry Canada asked its owner, San Lorenzo Latin American Community Center, to cease transmissions from its present site near Dufferin and Lawrence northwest of downtown Toronto “due to interference problems from their transmissions.” Documents filed with the application suggest that CHHA’s neighbors in the residential area were complaining about interference from the station’s signal, but weren’t willing to let the station’s engineers in to remedy the problems.
CHHA is applying to move to a new site at 275 Unwin Avenue in the Port of Toronto, from which it will put a stronger signal over downtown but will reach fewer people overall, at least initially, though the station says it will apply for a power increase once it gets the new signal up and running.

1670 New station
In Ottawa and nearby Gatineau, Quebec, Fondation Radio Enfant du Canada is applying for a new signal on 1670. The 1,000-watt signal would program a French-language kids’ and teens’ format.
