In the course of some experimental broadcasting in the summer, sufficient volunteers came forward and gained the experience that would be needed to get the new station on the air.

On April 16th, Radio-Acton Inc was granted a six year licence, to expire on August 31st 2010, to operate a Type B community radio programming undertaking in Acton Vale QC. The station would operate at 103.7 MHz with an effective radiated power of 1650 watts. The station would broadcast 126 hours of programming weekly; a minimum of 110 hours would be devoted to station-produced programming.

On June 13th, the CRTC approved an application by CFID-FM for permission to change the authorized contours of the station by increasing the average effective radiated power from 1650 to 2647 watts. The station had requested the change in order to improve its signal.
