Red Deer Visitor and Convention Bureau

On July 29, the CRTC approved the application by Red Deer Visitor and Convention Bureau for a broadcasting licence to operate a low-power English-language FM radio station in Red Deer to provide a tourist information service. The station would broadcast, on a year-round basis, pre-recorded messages promoting the tourist sites and events in Red Deer. The station would operate at 89.9 MHz (channel 210LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts. The licence would expire August 31, 2008.


CKTC-FM began broadcasting.


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. CKTC-FM’s licence would expire August 31, 2015.


On May 15, the CRTC revoked the licence of CKTC-FM at the request of the licensee, Red Deer Visitor and Convention Bureau. The station would continue its operation as an exempt undertaking.
