 Ici Radio-Canada Première

CBEF 1550 AM is an Ici Radio-Canada Première station established in 1970 and owned by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. CBC received approval from BBG to set up a French language station on a frequency of 540 AM. CBEF was launched on May 18, 1970 on a frequency of 540 kHz with an ERP of 2,500 and 5,000 w for day and nighttime. An application for FM repeater at Sarnia was made in 1976 but was withdrawn by CBC as the signal strength of the main station: CBEF 1550 AM was quite improved by then. A satellite at Leamington was launched in May 1982. By 2001 the French language station at Windsor was producing about 36.5 hours of local content.
