Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region on 9 July 1987, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Manitouwadge on the frequency 89.7 MHz, channel 209, with an effective radiated power of 46,400 watts to rebroadcast the programs of the CBC English-language FM radio network originating from CBQ Thunder Bay, Ontario.
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 CBQ Thunder Ray.
The use of this FM frequency conforms with the guidelines set out in Public Notices CRTC 1985-86 and 1985-142 dated 2 May and 9 July 1985. The CBC has indicated that, depending on the quality of the signal provided by the new proposed FM station in White River and Hornepayne, it may be unnecessary to continue the operation of the existing transmitters at these locations.
The CBC has further indicated that it proposes to cease operation of its low-power AM stations CBRB Manitouwage and CBLM Marathon (rebroadcasters of CBL Toronto), within one year of the date on which the proposed FM becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBEB Manitouwadge and CBLM Marathon within this timeframe.
