Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region on 7 June 1988, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Elliot Lake on the frequency 101.7 MHz, channel 269, with an effective radiated power of 1,000 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 31 August 1989 which is the expiry date of the licence for CBON-FM and will be 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 Notice CRTC 1985-142 dated 9 July 1985.
The Commission further notes that CBON-5 Elliot Lake and CBON-6 Blind River currently rebroadcast the CBC French-language AM radio network service to Elliot Lake and Blind River, respectively. The CBC has indicated that it intends to shut down CBON-5, within a year of the date on which the new FM transmitter becomes becomes operational and CBON-6, once it has determined that this region is being adequately served by the new transmitter.
Accordingly, the Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBON-5 Elliot Lake within twelve months of the date on which the new FM transmitter becomes operational. With respect to CBON-6 Blind River, the Commission requires the licensee to report, within six months of the date on which the new FM transmitter becomes operational, on the technical adequacy of the service in Blind River and to outline its plans for CBON-6.
The Commission also notes that CBCE-FM Little Current, Ontario will relay the CBC'S network service to the new FM station at Elliot Lake by utilizing the Subsidiary Communications Multiplex Operation (SCMO) channel, as authorized in Decision CRTC 88-642 of today's date.
