Decision CRTC 2000-313
Ottawa, 14 August 2000

Christian Radio Manitoba Ltd.
Winnipeg, Manitoba – 200002030

Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 2000-79
dated 7 June 2000

Use of frequency 95.1 MHz approved for CHVN-FM Winnipeg


The Commission approves the application to amend the licence for CHVN-FM Winnipeg, by authorizing the licensee to operate on frequency 95.1 MHz (channel 236C1) with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts.


In its initial application for an FM station at Winnipeg, Christian Radio Manitoba Ltd. proposed to use frequency 107.1 MHz (channel 296C1). The Department of Industry had, however, rejected that frequency. The Commission directed Christian Radio to submit revised technical parameters. In response, the licensee filed the present application to operate on frequency 95.1 MHz. The Department of Industry has accepted the new frequency.


The CBC also applied to the Commission for authority to operate its French-language stereo transmitter at St-Boniface (Winnipeg) on frequency 95.1 MHz. In an intervention to Christian Radio's request, the CBC stated that it would file a revised application proposing another frequency if the Commission authorized CHVN-FM to use frequency 95.1 MHz. The Commission is satisfied with Christian Radio's response to the CBC.


The licence will only be issued and effective when CHVN-FM 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 station 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 Commission will only issue the licence and grant the authority to operate when it receives notification from the Department of Industry that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


The Commission acknowledges the many interventions submitted in support of Christian Radio's application.
