Decision CRTC 2000-407
Ottawa, 5 October 2000
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Chicoutimi and La Baie, Quebec
– 200003708

Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 2000-123
dated 23 August 2000

Addition of a transmitter of CBJ-FM at La Baie


The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBJ-FM Chicoutimi (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add an FM transmitter at La Baie, operating on frequency 93.7 MHz, (channel 229LP), with an effective radiated power of 8.9 watts.


This transmitter will provide the programming of CBJ-FM (La Première Chaîne) and correct the lack of direct signal in the downtown areas of La Baie.


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.


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.


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.
Secretary General
