CKBH-AM, Baie Comeau
Henry Leonard received a licence to operate a new AM station at Baie Comeau, operating on 790 kHz. Power would be 1,000 watts during the day and 250 watts at night. The new station would provide local news and a programming alternative to CHLC in Hauterive.
CKBH went on the air using a Sintronic 1,000 watt SI-A-1S transmitter.
CKBH closed down after only two years of operation.

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.
