|Seaway Campus Community Radio Station
On December 2, the CRTC approved the application by Seaway Campus Community Radio Station for a broadcasting licence for a low-power English-language FM Type B community radio programming undertaking at Iroquois. The licence would expire August 31, 2005. The station would broadcast from a studio located in a local high school. Programming would include news, reports from community groups, stories for children, messages from local clergy, sports and hobby features, talking books, agricultural information and programs directed to teens. The licensee planned to broadcast a minimum of 86 hours of local programming each week and would ensure that no more than 15% of the musical selections broadcast would be hits. At least 8% of the music played would be drawn from Category 3 music (Traditional and Special Interest). The new FM station would operate on the frequency 107.7 MHz with an effective radiated power of 50 watts.
Storm 107 CISD-FM began on-air testing in the summer and signed on October 2. The station served listeners in the newly formed Township of South Dundas as well as those in the eastern parts of Grenville County and in St. Lawrence County in northern New York state.
Storm 107 was given its name in a listener contest and began life as a closed circuit operation within the walls of Seaway District High School.
On December 18, the CRTC approved the application by Seaway Campus Community Radio Station for the revocation of the licence for CISD-FM.

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.
