  New radiocommunication distribution undertaking


The Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence to carry on a radiocommunication distribution undertaking consisting of 3 low-power television transmitters and 2 low-power FM radio transmitters at Campbell Road.


Subject to the requirements of this decision, the Commission will issue a licence, expiring 31 August 2006. This licence will be subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued.


This undertaking will distribute, in non-encrypted mode, the following programming services:
  CHAN-TV (CTV) Vancouver
CITV-TV (IND) Edmonton
Open Learning Agency (Knowledge Network)


The licensee is authorized to distribute these services on channels 22, 25 and 28, each with a transmitter power of 20 watts.


This undertaking will also distribute CISN-FM Edmonton, on the frequency 103.9 MHz (channel 280 LP) and CFMI-FM New Westminster, on the frequency104.7 MHz (channel 284 LP), each with an effective radiated power of 5 watts.


The licence will only be issued and effective when the undertaking is 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 undertaking 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.


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.


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.
