CBZ Fredericton - New transmitter in Edmundston


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBZ Fredericton in order to operate a transmitter in Edmundston to rebroadcast the programming of its national English-language network service Radio One.


The new transmitter will improve the service in the Edmundston area by replacing the existing low-power AM transmitter CBAM. It will operate at 99.5 MHz (channel 258C1) with an effective radiated power of 24,000 watts.


The licensee is authorized, by condition of licence, to simulcast the programming of CBZ Fredericton on the AM band for a period of three months following the installation of its FM transmitter. The licensee will then cease operation of its AM transmitter CBAM Edmundston.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.


The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate when it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.


The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 21 August 2005. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before this date.
