|Licence amendment for CFBV; addition of an FM transmitter at Houston|
|1. The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CFBV Smithers (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at Houston, operating on frequency 106.5 MHz (channel 293B), with an effective radiated power of 923 watts.|
|2. This new transmitter will replace AM transmitter CHBV Houston and will rebroadcast, in its entirety and on the FM band, the programming of CFBV Smithers.|
|3. This authority will only be effective and the licence will only be amended when the new transmitter is completed 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 transmitter is 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. The Department will only issue a broadcasting certificate once it has 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.|
