CJAF signed on the air.


CJAF was given approval to move from 1340 kHz to 1240 kHz. Power was 250 watts. CJAF was owned by Radio CJFP Ltee.


On March 14, a share transfer of Radio CJFP Ltee was approved: 50% from four of the present shareholders to Luc Simard, Walter Jutras, and CKRT-TV Ltd., and Paul Bienvenu.

On July 26, Radio CJFP Ltee was authorized to increase CJAF’s daytime power from 250 to 1,000 watts. Night-time power would remain 250 watts.


CJAF (through CJFP) was given approval April 15 to affiliate with the Telemedia Radio Network.


CJAF was granted a night-time power increase from 250 to 1,000 watts.


On January 8, Radio CJFP Ltée’s application for an FM transmitter at Degelis was denied. It would have operated on 97.7 MHz with ERP of 1.75 watts if approved. The new CJFP transmitter was proposed in order to solve signal problems of rebroadcaster CJAF in Cabano. CJAF’s signal was mediocre during the day and non-existent at night. The proposed station would rebroadcast all the programs of CJFP Rivière-du-Loup, including programs of the Radio-Canada and Telemedia networks, to which CJFP was affiliated.


On September 24, Radio CJFP (1986) Ltée received authority to acquire CJFP Rivière-du-Loup and its rebroadcasters CJAF Cabano and CHRT Pohénégamook from Radio CJFP Ltée. The transfer did not involve a change in effective control. Luc Simard, who held the control of Radio CJFP Ltée, became the only shareholder of the new licensee company, Radio CJFP (1986) Ltée.

On December 11, Radio CJFP Ltée’s application to rebroadcast CKAC Montreal during specified hours over CJFP, CJAF, CHRT and CJTF-FM was denied. It had hoped to rebroadcast the CKAC programming between 6:05 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. Monday to Friday and between 6:07 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. on Sunday. In turning down the application, the CRTC noted these stations already rebroadcast, in part, the programming of the Radio-Canada network.


On June 23, CJFP and its rebroadcasters received approval to disaffiliate from Radio-Canada.


On September 13, CJFP was given approval to convert to the FM band. The new station would operate at Rivière-du-Loup on 103.7 MHz with an effective radiated power of 60,000 watts. An associated transmitter at Pointe-de-Rivière-du-Loup would operate on 93.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 13.3 watts. Existing transmitters CJAF Cabano and CJTF-FM Trois-Pistoles would continue to operate. CJFP-AM Rivière-du-Loup and CHRT Pohénégamook would cease to operate.

CJFP-FM began operations on December 15, replacing CJFP-AM.


On September 11, Radio CJFP (1986) ltée was given approval to add an FM transmitter at Cabano, operating on 98.3 MHz with an effective radiated power of 3,000 watts. The new station would replace CJAF-AM.


CJFP became CIEL.
