AM station going away

St-Boniface, Manitoba: 1050KHz:
CKSB to move to FM.

CKSB-1050 is currently operating a 2,800-watt FM relayer in downtown Winnipeg on 90.5. They've applied for permission to move this FM station to 88.1 from the site southwest of the city formerly used by the CBC's analog TV stations there. The move would include a power increase to 100,000 watts.

(the TV stations ironically moved to the downtown site when they converted to digital -- however, CBC's 160kw Radio Two FM transmitter is still at the southwestern site, along with three private stations)

Assuming the power increase is granted for the FM station, the CBC will close AM 1050.
