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 Espanola on the frequency 94.9 MHz, channel 235A, with an effective radiated power of 870 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 1985-142 dated 9 July 1985.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this proposal is technically acceptable but that issuance of a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate is conditional on the resolution of any problems involving interference to aeronautical NAV/COM services.
The CBC has indicated that it intends to shut down CBON-7 Espanola, which currently rebroadcasts the programs of the CBC French-language AM radio network service, no later than six months from the date on which the new transmitter becomes operational. Accordingly, the Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBON-7 within this timeframe.
