Ottawa, 8 June 1994
Decision CRTC 94-306
Friends of Algonquin Park
Whitney (Algonquin Provincial Park), Ontario - 931155600 - 931156400
New low-power FM radio undertakings
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region beginning on 25 April 1994, the Commission approves the applications for broadcasting licences for English- and French-language FM radio programming undertakings at the East and West entrances to Algonquin Provincial Park, on the frequency 102.7 MHz (channel 274), with an effective radiated power of 10 watts, to broadcast non-commercial tourist information programming of interest to visitors to this area.
The Commission will issue licences expiring 31 August 1997, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licences to be issued. This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of these licences at the same time as that of other radio stations in the area.
The program material will consist of an information message in both English and French, lasting up to a maximum of four minutes, and repeated on a continuous basis.
It is a condition of each licence that all program material broadcast by the station consist exclusively of tourist information messages.
It is also a condition of each licence that all program material broadcast contain no commercial adverstising.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised that the undertakings will broadcast on the frequency 102.7 MHz rather than on the frequency 91.5 MHz as had been indicated in CRTC Notice of Public Hearing 1994-3 dated 24 February 1994.
DOC has also advised the Commission that these applications are conditionally technically acceptable, and that Broadcasting Certificates will only be issued once it has been determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
In accordance with subsection 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licences, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that its technical requirements have been met, and that Broadcasting Certificates will be issued.
It is a condition of each licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within six months of the date of receipt of the DOC notification referred to in the preceding paragraph 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 periods of time as are approved in writing by the Commission.
