VF2413-FM, Tourist, North Battleford
|VF2413-FM||88.9||0.075||Robert Wayne Fennig|
On February 20, the CRTC approved an application by Robert Wayne Fennig for a broadcasting licence to operate a very low-power English-language FM radio programming undertaking in North Battleford. The new station would operate, on a year round basis, during the hours of operation of the Western Development Museum and during special events at the museum. It would broadcast music related to exhibits or special events at the museum and internal information pertaining to the museum. It would not broadcast advertising material or general tourist information. The station would operate at 88.9 MHz (channel 205VLP) with an effective radiated power of 0.075 watt. The licence would expire August 31, 2009.
VF2413 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. VF2413’s licence would expire August 31, 2016.

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.
