Decision

Ottawa, 10 February 1999
Decision CRTC 99-34
Native Communication Inc.
Thompson and St. Theresa Point, Manitoba - 199807302Public Notice dated 18 December 1998
Addition of a transmitter for the distribution of the programming of CINC-FM Thompson
1.  The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CINC-FM Thompson, by authorizing the licensee to add an FM transmitter at St. Theresa Point, operating on frequency 93.5 MHz (channel 228LP), with an effective radiated power of 35.8 watts.
2.  The technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service. Accordingly, the applicant would have to select another frequency for the operation of the service should optimum utilization of the broadcasting spectrum so require.
3.  The authority will only be effective and the licence will only be amended when the new transmitting facilities are constructed and ready to begin operation. When the licensee has completed construction and is prepared to commence operation, it must advise the Commission in writing. If the transmitting facilities are not constructed and ready to operate within 12 months of today's date, extensions to this time frame may be granted provided that the licensee applies in writing to the Commission before the 12-month period or any extension of that period expires.
4.  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.
5.  In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the above-mentioned amendment will only be valid when the Department of Industry certifies to the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a Broadcasting Certificate has been or will be issued.
