What does VOAR mean?
- VOAR is a Canadian radio station, which airs religious programming in Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador on 1210 kHz and various FM frequencies. The station first broadcast in the fall of 1929. Over the years, the station switched from one AM frequency to another, until VOAR moved to its frequency approved by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission in 1991. Since 2002 it was broadcasting mainly on FM. VOAR is one of just four broadcast radio stations in Canada whose call letters do not begin with C. The others, VOWR, VOCM, and VOCM-FM, are based in St. John's, where VOAR initially was based. All four stations first aired before Newfoundland joined the Canadian Confederation in 1949. The ITU prefix VO was originally assigned to Newfoundland and remains in use by Newfoundland and Labrador radioamateurs.
