CBT 540 update.
Further to my e-mail to this group of 7th January, CBC have written in an e-mail to me today:
“CBC Newfoundland is currently testing a new FM antenna that will replace the AM service from Grand Falls.
The AM service will be turned off when the transmission department is satisfied that the new equipment is running smoothly.
The shut off date has not been confirmed, and will be adjusted as necessary.”
A reminder that the CRTC decision 2022-14 says “”The licensee is authorized to simulcast the programming of the new FM station on CBT Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and Labrador, for a transition period of three months following the commencement of operations of the FM station”. It is reported that the FM station began on 3rd November 2022. The station was to discontinue operations on 31st December. The link here is courtesy of Dan Sys rwcrn.
