Following a Public Hearing in Victoria on 10 February 1987, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English-language FM radio station at Kangiqcliniq (Rankin Inlet) on the frequency 105.1 MHz, channel 286A, with an effective radiated power of 87 watts to rebroadcast programs of the CBC Northern Radio Service received via satellite and programs from studios located at Kangiqcliniq.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1991, subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued.
The Commission notes that the use of this new FM frequency conforms with the guidelines set out in Public Notices CRTC 1985-86 and 1985-142 dated 2 May and 9 July 1985 respectively.
The CBC has indicated that it intends to cease the operation of CBQR Kangiqcliniq, no later than six months following the date on which the new transmitter becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease operation of CBQR within this time frame.
The Commission is satisfied that the replacement of this low-power unprotected AM station with the proposed FM facilities will result in an extension of the CBC AM network service to a significantly greater population in this area.
