On January 7, the CRTC approved the application by Aylesford Community Baptist Church for a broadcasting licence to operate a low-power English-language FM religious radio programming undertaking in Aylesford. The station would air 40 hours of religious programming in each broadcast week featuring religious celebrations as well as emergency announcements from the Aylesford Volunteer Fire Department, the local detachment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the area’s Emergency Measures Organization. The station would also broadcast music drawn from subcategory 35 (non-classical religious). The station would operate at 101.1 MHz (channel 266LP) with an effective radiated power of 5 watts.


VF8023 began broadcasting.


On December 4, the CRTC approved VF8023’s application to change the frequency from 101.1 MHz (channel 266LP) to 98.7 MHz (channel 254B), and the station’s class from unprotected low-power to protected Class B; increase the average effective radiated power from 50 to 9,600 watts (maximum ERP from 50 to 25,000 watts); and increase the effective height of antenna above average terrain from -4.3 to 201.4 metres.
