Public Notice CRTC 2000-62
dated 10 May 2000

Addition of a transmitter of CBN-FM


The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBN-FM St. John's (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at Grand Falls. The transmitter will operate on frequency 90.7 MHz (channel 214C1) with an effective radiated power of 57,000 watts.


The transmitter will offer the CBC's Radio Two service.


The authority will only be effective and the licence will only be amended when the new transmitter is 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 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.


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.
