FM transmitters for the Port-aux-Basques, St. Andrew’s, Deer Lake, Mount St. Margaret and couple others were launched replacing the respective low-power transmitters in the upcoming years. The CRTC endorsed the increase in wattage form 1,000 to 1,020 watts, decrement in EHAAT and maximum ERP in 2009.
