Ottawa, 7 July 1989
Decision CRTC 89-441
Western Broadcasting Limited
Deer Lake, Newfoundland - 882444300
Following a Public Hearing in Moncton on 10 April 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Deer Lake on the frequency 95.1 MHz, channel 236, with an effective radiated power of 10 watts, to rebroadcast the programs of CKWK Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1993, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
The Commission notes that the existing CKWK signal covers the Deer Lake area but reception is marginal and that the new FM rebroadcaster will improve coverage and service to the communities of Deer Lake, Cormack, Reidville and Nicholsville.
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. In accordance with paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that it will issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate.
It is a condition of licence that the authority granted herein be implemented within twelve months of the date of receipt of written notification from the DOC that it will issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certification or, where the applicant applies to the Commission and satisfies the Commission that it cannot implement its authority before the expiry of this twelve-month period and that an extension of this period is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
The Commission acknowledges the interventions received in support of this application from the Town of Deer Lake and the Community of Cormack.

Secretary General
