Following a Public Hearing in Calgary on 28 May 1985, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English-language AM radio station at Slave Lake on the frequency 1,210 kHz, with an effective radiated power of 1,000 watts (both day-time and night-time). This station will rebroadcast the programs of CFOK Westlock except for four hours between 07:00 and 11:00 Monday through Saturday when local programming will originate from the Slave Lake studios.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 March 1990, subject to the conditions of licence specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
The Commission notes that this new station will provide the first local radio service to the community of Slave Lake.
It is a condition of licence that construction of the station be completed and that it be in operation within twelve months of the date of this decision or such further period as the Commission may, upon receipt of a request for extension before the expiry of the said twelve months, deem appropriate under the circumstances.
The Commission acknowledges the intervention submitted by Mr. Robert Knall in support of the application.
