CFBA-FM, Tourist, Foam Lake

Shelley Thoen-Chaykoski

On June 3, the CRTC approved the application by Shelley Thoen-Chaykoski for a low-power English-language FM radio station at Foam Lake to provide a tourist information service. The station would broadcast, on a year-round basis, pre-recorded messages informing visitors to the Quill Lakes area about birding, hunting and eco-tourism opportunities. The station would operate at 99.1 MHz (channel 256LP) with an effective radiated power of 47 watts. The licence would expire August 31, 2008.


CFBA-FM signed on the air.


On November 21, the CRTC issued an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided tourist information. It came into effect immediately. Licensees of radio stations that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences. CFBA-FM’s licence would expire August 31, 2015.
