Decision

Ottawa, 1 May 1998

Decision CRTC 98-144

North Thompson Yellowhead T.V. Association

Blue River, British Columbia - 199707345

Licence amendment

1.  Following Public Notice CRTC 1998-23 dated 13 March 1998, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radiocommunication distribution undertaking serving Blue River, by adding two transmitters operating on the frequencies 90.3 MHz, channel 212VLP, and 93.9 MHz, channel 230VLP, each with an effective radiated power of 8.2 watts to provide, in non-encrypted mode, the programming services of CISN-FM Edmonton and CFMI-FM New Westminster.

2.  This authority will only be effective and the licence will only be amended at such time as construction of the transmitters is completed and it is prepared to commence operation. If the construction is not completed 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 construction and commence operation before the expiry of this period, and that an extension of time is in the public interest, within such further periods of time as are approved in writing by the Commission, the licence will not be amended. The applicant is required to advise the Commission (before the expiry of the twelve-month period or any extension thereof) in writing, once it has completed construction and is prepared to commence operation.

3.  The Department of Industry 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.

4.  In accordance with subsection 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence amendment and the authority will only be granted at such time as written notification is received from the Department of Industry that its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.

This decision is to be appended to the licence.
