Major AM frequency change in Ontario

Windsor, Ontario: 540 & 1550 KHz: CBEF requests frequency change from 540 to 1550 The French-language Premiere Chaine station proposes to take over the transmission facility abandoned by English-language station CBE-1550 earlier this year. Inspection of the CBEF 540 towers showed serious deterioration; apparently it would be less expensive to use the old AM transmitter and abandon the AM 540 site.
