Three months from now, New Brunswick (NB) will only have three stations left on AM. Even the CBC LPRTs have all moved to FM.
The following is a list of all AM stations in New Brunswick.
590 NB Sussex CJCW Directional with different patterns day and night. Power is 1000 watts day and 250 watts at night.
930 NB Saint John CFBC Non-directional with 2000 watts days and 150 watts at night.
950 NB Campbellton CKNB HITS 100 debuted November 14 at 8:00 AM Atlantic Standard Time, marking the official flip to CKNB-FM at 100.7 MHz with 5330 watts. With FM testing complete, the clock begins ticking on the three months of simulcasting before the AM transmitter is turned off for the last time.
1260 NB Fredericton CKHJ CRTC approval for non-directional operation was granted in October 2020, with 10KW day and 32 watts at night. Two FM rebroadcasters, CKHJ-2-FM with 250 watts on 103.5 MHz in nearby Oromocto NB and CKHJ-1-FM with 50 watts on 95.1 MHz in New Maryland NB, were already in place to make up for the deepest nulls in the previous 10KW night pattern. The former KHJ branding has been replaced with PURE COUNTRY 103.5, based on national branding used by owner Bell Media.
