Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-49


Ottawa, 20 February 2002


Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Newfoundland and Labrador
Bay Roberts, Botwood, Corner Brook, Deer Lake, Gander, Goose Bay, Grand Falls, Lewisporte, Marystown, Port aux Basques, Springdale and Wabush, Newfoundland and Labrador


Application 2001-0695-7
Public Hearing in the National Capital Region
14 January 2002


Addition of FM transmitters of VOAR Mount Pearl


The Commission approves the application by Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Newfoundland and Labrador to amend the broadcasting licence for VOAR Mount Pearl (the originating station) and authorizes the licensee to add FM transmitters at Bay Roberts, Botwood, Corner Brook, Deer Lake, Gander, Goose Bay, Grand Falls, Lewisporte, Marystown, Port aux Basques, Springdale and Wabush.


As proposed, the new FM transmitters will operate on the frequencies and effective radiated powers (ERP) listed below:





Bay Roberts

95.9 MHz


250 watts


101.1 MHz


50 watts

Corner Brook

105.7 MHz


250 watts

Deer Lake

102.1 MHz


50 watts


89.7 MHz


50 watts

Goose Bay

101.9 MHz


250 watts

Grand Falls

98.3 MHz

252 A1

250 watts


91.7 MHz


50 watts


99.5 MHz


15 watts

Port aux Basques

99.9 MHz


50 watts


103.3 MHz


50 watts


102.5 MHz


50 watts


The authority will be effective and the licence will be amended only at such time as:

  • the licensee confirms in writing that it is ready to begin operation of the transmitters. This must take place within 12 months of today's date. Any request for an extension to that deadline requires Commission approval and must be made in writing within that period.
  •  the Department of Industry, having advised that the application is conditionally technically acceptable, has determined that there is no unacceptable interference with NAV/COM services and indicated that it will issue a broadcasting certificate (section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act).


Some of the technical parameters approved in this decision are for low-power unprotected FM services. For each of these low-power FM services, the applicant would have to select another frequency for the operation of the services should optimum utilization of the broadcasting spectrum so require.


The Commission acknowledges the numerous interventions filed in support of this application.
