Fusion Radio is currently undergoing the process of obtaining an over-the-air frequency band and being approved for broadcast by Industry Canada and the CRTC. More information will be available as we complete more phases of implementation plan and complete further consultation with engineers and licensing experts.
A preliminary frequency analysis for FM identified some available frequency bands, however, their possibility of viable use were later dismissed:
A new preliminary analysis for AM frequencies was conducted recently and identified multiple bands available, with one specifically meeting the criteria Fusion Radio was seeking in terms of expansion within the city of Toronto. Currently the preparation of a CRTC application is underway as we work toward obtaining licensing and establishing a broadcasting tower within the next year on the University of Toronto Scarborough Campus. This endeavour has been recently supported by our 2016 student levy fee increase referendum that was approved by university governance early February of 2017. This is exciting news and we hope to bring your over-the-air broadcasting before the end of 2018.
A copy of the feasibility study for AM radio licensing will be posted soon.
