Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1984-141 dated 11 June 1984, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CKGB Timmins by decreasing the power from 25,000 watts to 10,000 watts (day-time) and 5,000 watts (night-time) and changing the frequency from 730 kHz to 750 kHz .
The Commission notes that the licensee never implemented the authority granted in Decision CRTC 81-623 to increase its power from 10,000 watts to 25,000 watts and change its frequency from 680 kHz to 730 kHz.
The new parameters should result in the same quality of service being provided to the city of Timmins as that which would have been received from the authorized 730 kHz frequency. The night-time coverage to rural areas should be superior, particularly to the east, including the towns of Porcupine, South Porcupine and Pamour, and also to the west.
