CBU-FM Vancouver - New transmitter in Quesnel


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBU-FM Vancouver in order to operate a transmitter in Quesnel to rebroadcast the programming of its national English-language network service, Radio Two.


The transmitter will operate at 106.9 MHz (channel 295LP) with an effective radiated power of 20 watts.


The Commission received an intervention by Richard Cooper commenting on this application. Mr. Cooper suggested programs that he would like the CBC to broadcast.


The transmitter in Quesnel is presently licensed to North Cariboo Community FM Stereo Society (the Society) as a radiocommunication distribution undertaking (RDU). It rebroadcasts Radio Two from CBU-FM. In Revocation of licence, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-467, also released today, the Commission has revoked the broadcasting licence for this RDU, as requested by the Society.


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


Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the CBC that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.
