Changes on Canadian AM
Application by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to convert radio station CBE Windsor on 1550 kHz from the AM band to the FM band.
If approved by the CRTC, this application will put an end DX reception of Windsor’s 10,000 watt CBE but may open up other possibilities.

The move of CFCW-790 Camrose AB to 840 has been approved by the CRTC:
1. The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. (Newcap) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language AM radio programming undertaking CFCW Camrose by changing the frequency from 790 kHz to 840 kHz. The implementation of the new technical parameters is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the
Department) discussed in paragraph 4 below.
2. Newcap indicated that the proposed change in frequency would restore night time coverage to listeners in north-central Alberta, which has been reduced by noise and interference over time.
