Ottawa, 18 February 1993
Decision CRTC 93-69
Central Okanagan Re-Broadcast Society
Winfield, British Columbia - 920734100
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region held on 19 January 1993, the Commission approves the application for a licence to carry on a radiocommunication distribution undertaking consisting of one low-power FM radio transmitter to serve Winfield.
The Commission will issue a licence to Central Okanagan Re-Broadcast Society, expiring 31 August 1997, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and 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 similar undertakings in the area.
This undertaking will distribute, in non-encrypted mode, the programs of CBU-FM Vancouver, received via satellite.
The Department of Communications has advised that CBU-FM Vancouver will be distributed with an effective radiated power of 5.9 watts on a frequency of 91.9 MHz (channel 220) rather than on a frequency of 91.1 MHz (channel 216), as had been originally applied for and indicated in Notice of Public Hearing CRTC 1992-16 dated 13 November 1992.
It is a condition of licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete implementation before the expiry of this period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
The Commission notes the intervention to this application submitted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation with respect to the frequency initially proposed and is satisfied that the change authorized responds to the concerns raised.

Secretary General
