Following a Public Hearing in Hull, Quebec on 19 November 1985, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an FM radio station at Hearst on the frequency 90.3 MHz, channel 212B, with an effective radiated power of 10,500 watts to rebroadcast the programs of the CBC French-language AM radio network originating from CBON-FM Sudbury, Ontario.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 30 September 1987, subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued. This term will enable the Commission in consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of CBON-FM Sudbury.
The Commission notes that this new FM station conforms to the guidelines concerning the use of FM channels for the extension of the CBC's basic AM service, as set out in Public Notice CRTC 1985-86 and 1985-142 dated 2 May and 9 July 1985 respectively. The Commission is satisfied that this replacement of a low-power unprotected AM station with TV facilities will result in an extension of the CBC AM network service to a significantly greater population in this area.
It further notes that the CBC intends to cease the operation of CBON-3, the AM rebroadcaster of CBON-FM Sudbury in the Hearst area, one year after the new FM transmitter at Hearst becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease operation of CBON-3 within this time frame.
