(CRTC) Reduction in night power approved for CJGX 940 Yorkton.
Harvard Media got the go ahead today to decrease the night power at CJGX 940 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan from 10,000 to 690 watts. Day power will remain 50,000 watts. The applicant states that the towers that were being used for nighttime operation had reached their useful lifespan and have been removed due to safety concerns. It is not desirable to rebuild the nighttime towers due to the considerable cost. The daytime tower remains intact and will continue to operate at 50 kW daytime and proposed to operate at 0.69 kW nighttime with a non-directional antenna system.
