Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-473

  Ottawa, 4 November 2004
  Jim Pattison Industries Ltd.
Red Deer, Alberta
  Application 2004-0584-6
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2004-75
6 October 2004

Use of frequency 106.7 MHz by the new English-language FM radio station in Red Deer


The Commission approves the application by Jim Pattison Industries Ltd. to operate its new English-language FM radio station in Red Deer at 106.7 MHz (channel 294 C1) with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts.


The applicant filed this application in response to the Commission's direction in English-language FM radio station in Red Deer, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-117, 15 March 2004 (Decision 2004-117). The applicant had originally proposed to operate its new station at 99.9 MHz (channel 260 C1). In Decision 2004-117, the Commission stated that it would only issue a licence for this station provided that the applicant submitted an application proposing the use of another FM frequency that would be acceptable to both the Commission and to the Department of Industry (the Department).


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


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, the licence for this undertaking will only be issued once the Department has notified the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
