Public Notice CRTC 2000-3
dated 7 January 2000

Licence amendment for CIBW-FM


In Decision CRTC 97-13 dated 20 January 1997, the Commission approved the request submitted by Big West Communications Corp. (Big West) for authority to add a transmitter at Nordegg to provide the programming of CIBW-FM Drayton Valley. The licensee proposed to operate the transmitter on frequency 93.9 MHz (channel 230A), with an effective radiated power of 120 watts.


Big West has now requested that the authority for the transmitter at Nordegg (CHBW-FM-1) be deleted from the licence for CIBW-FM Drayton Valley and added instead to the licence for CHBW-FM Rocky Mountain House. As a result, the programming broadcast at Nordegg will now originate from CHBW-FM Rocky Mountain House.


The Commission approves this request and will amend the broadcasting licences for CIBW-FM Drayton Valley and CHBW-FM Rocky Mountain House accordingly.
