Ottawa, 29 September 1994
Decision CRTC 94-776
O.K. Radio Group Ltd.
Tar Island, Alberta - 940029200

Addition of a transmitter

Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1994-83 dated 13 July 1994, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CJ0K Fort McMurray (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at Suncor Oilsands Plant at Tar Island, operating on frequency 95.7 MHz, channel 239LP, with an effective radiated power of 44.3 watts.
The Department of Industry, Science and Technology (DIST) has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, and that a Broadcasting Certificate 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 licence amendment, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DIST that its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.
This approval is subject to the requirement that construction of the transmitting facilities be completed and that they be in operation within twelve months of the date of receipt of the DIST certification referred to in the preceding paragraph, or where the licensee applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete construction and commence operations before the expiry of the stated period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further periods of time as are approved in writing by the Commission.
Should construction not be completed within the period stipulated in this decision or, should the Commission refuse to approve an extension of time requested by the licensee, the authority granted shall lapse and become null and void upon expiry of the period of time granted herein or upon the termination of the last approved extension period.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
