A proposed Vernon community radio station is moving closer to the airwaves.

The Vernon Community Radio Society has filed its application with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to launch a new FM radio station to serve Greater Vernon.

Society president Gord Leighton said the application has been in the preparation stage for some weeks and was finalized when the society received a completed technical brief from their consulting engineer. The brief was made possible thanks to an $8,000 donation by the Kalamalka Rotary Club.

“The proposed new station has been assigned the call letters CFAN-FM by Industry Canada and has been branded as “Valley FM” by the non-profit Community Radio Society,” said Leighton.
.

The station will broadcast in stereo at 97.9 MHz on the FM dial, with an average effective radiated power of 581 watts. Peak power will be 1,000 watts.
