At a Public Hearing in Hull, Quebec on 8 February 1982, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission considered an application to amend the broadcasting licence for CJOK Fort McMurray by changing the frequency from 1230 kHz to 550 kHz, by increasing the day-time power from 1,000 watts to 10,000 watts and by increasing the night-time power from 500 watts to 5,000 watts.
Due to a prolonged period of consultation with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Communications has only now advised the Commission that the proposed changes in CJOK's technical parameters are acceptable and that it will issue the necessary Technical Construction and Operating Certificate.
In light of the above, the Commission approves this application, and notes that these technical changes will enable the licensee to improve and extend its day-time and night-time coverage.
The Commission further notes that, in response to an intervention from the CBC with respect to potential interference with the signal of CBK Regina, the licensee undertook to ensure that all measures will be taken to prevent any interference and stated that it will conform fully to the technical requirements of the Department of Communications.
