Public Hearing in the National Capital Region
29 November 2004
CBN St. John's - New transmitter in Placentia
The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBN St. John's, in order to operate a transmitter in Placentia to broadcast the programming of the national English-language network service, Radio One.
The new transmitter will operate at 94.1 MHz (channel 231B1) with an average effective radiated power of 1,763 watts.
The Commission received four interventions in support of 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 2 February 2007. 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.
This decision is to be appended to the licence. It is available in alternative format upon request, and may also be examined at the following Internet site: www.crtc.gc.ca
