1690 C… Montreal (PQ). There are now calls for the new ethnic outlet on 1690: it’ll be CJOL.
New applications in Montreal:
CRTC will hear eight applications for new stations in Montreal when it holds a public hearing April 30 at its headquarters in Gatineau, Quebec.
Three of them are for AM signals – Gospel Media Communications for a 5.8 kW Christian music outlet on 650, Radio Humsafar for a 1 kW ethnic station on 1400 and S.S. TV Inc. for a 10 kW ethnic station on 1410, which would replace the old CFMB signal at that frequency, since moved down the dial to 1280.
