On January 10, the CRTC approved the application by Big Country Tourist Association for a low power English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Drumheller on the frequency 94.5 MHz, channel 233, with an effective radiated power of 10 watts, to broadcast 24 hours a day pre-taped tourist information programming with a musical background. The licence would expire August 31, 1995.
CHTR-FM began broadcasting.
On November 21, the CRTC issued an exemption order for low-power radio stations that provided tourist information. It came into effect immediately. Licensees of radio stations that considered their operations to be eligible for exemption under the order could file a simple statement asking that the Commission revoke their licences. CHTR’s licence was scheduled to expire August 31, 2014.

Effective September 1st 2019, we will only be adding new material to these station histories in exceptional circumstances. Our intent to chronicle the early days of these radio and television stations has been achieved, and many new sources and technologies, from the CRTC website to Wikipedia, and others, are now regularly providing new information in these areas.
