Following a Public Hearing in Vancouver on 8 June 1987, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Faro on the frequency 105.1 MHz, channel 286, with an effective radiated power of 87 watts to rebroadcast the programs of the CBC English-language AM radio network service originating from CFWH Whitehorse.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1988, subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued. This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of CFWH Whitehorse.
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 CBQK Faro, which currently provides the CBC English-language AM radio network service, within twelve months of the date on which the new FM transmitter becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBQK within this time frame.
