Following a Public Hearing in Hull, Quebec on 18 March 1986, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English-language FM radio station at High Level on the frequency of 88.1 MHz, channel 201B, with an effective radiated power of 9,400 watts to rebroadcast the programs of CBX Edmonton.
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 to consider the renewal of this licence of the same time as that of CBX.
The Commission notes that the use of this FM frequency conforms to the guidelines set out in Public Notices CRTC 1985-86 and 1985-142 dated 2 May and 9 July 1985 respectively, and it is satisfied that the replacement of a low-power unprotected AM station with FM facilities will result in an extension of the CBC AM network service to a significantly greater population in this area.
It further notes that CBC intends to cease the operation of CBKD, a low-power AM station which rebroadcasts CBX Edmonton in High Level, "once it's satisfied with the number of FM receivers and listening habits in the area".
The Commission expects the CBC to surrender the licence for CBKD before its expiry on 30 September 1987. The Commission considers that this will give the CBC sufficient time both to implement the new FM station and to inform listeners of the availability of the new FM service.
