CHSV-FM is a new radio station which will broadcast an English-language soft adult contemporary/easy listening format on the frequency of 106.7 MHz (FM) in Hudson/Saint-Lazare, Quebec, Canada, part of Montreal's western suburbs. The station is owned by Evanov Communications under licensee Dufferin Communications Inc.

History[edit]

On January 20, 2012, Evanov announced that Dufferin applied with the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) to establish a new Soft AC station in Hudson; the new station would broadcast at 106.7 MHz at 500 watts at 94 metres HAAT. The frequency choice, however, would have conflicted with CKDG-FM's plans to relocate to 106.7, the frequency previously used by an Aboriginal Voices repeater in Montreal;[1][2] however, on February 6, 2012, CKDG notified the CRTC that they had withdrawn its application for the frequency change, though it was unknown whether or not Evanov's application for the new station had to do with its decision.[3][4]

On October 19, 2012, Evanov received approval for the new station from the CRTC.[5] The new station would receive the CHSV-FM callsign in February 2013. However, commencement of broadcasting was delayed when Eveanov sought CRTC approval of technical changes, which would allow the station to broadcast instead at 1,420 watts (maximum ERP 2,650 watts), on a directional antenna pattern with an EHAAT of 94.5 metres, from a new site 5.3 km southeast of the original location. The change of the parameters was due to its original site, on a tower owned by Bell Mobility, becoming unsuitable, both technically and economically. In addition, the station received interventions from CJVD-FM Vaudreuil-Dorion, over competition issues; and CKIN-FM 106.3 Montreal, due to potential second-adjacent interference issues. The application, nevertheless, was approved September 18, 2014,[6] with Evanov soon announcing that the station would commence broadcasting in the fall of 2014.[7]

When the station begins broadcasting, it will adopt the Jewel branding used by many other Evanov stations in the chain.[8]
