More About CHOX 97,5

This move made the part-time repeater a fulltime one. 15 hours of programing was borrowed from the sister CJFP and therefore, CHAL and CHGB somewhere after 1984 became the fulltime satellites of the station (CJFP). Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in 1990 permitted CIBM-FM Mont-Bleu Ltee to change the band to FM and shift to 97.5 MHz using and ERP of 25,160 w. Newly adopted calls were: CHOX-FM. CHOX-FM replaced both CHAL and CHGB on April 23, 1992 and the transmitters were eventually grounded in July 1992. The channel currently is operating 3 – all LP and FM – transmitters at Baie-Saint-Paul, Saint-Aubert and Sainte-Perpétue. In the later years a couple of satellites got approved by the commission and stated operating. CRTC renewed the license of CHOX on Aug 14, 2008 until Aug 2015. You can listen the 97.5 CHOX-FM online.
