Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-104

  Ottawa, 29 March 2006
  Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Gander and Glovertown, Newfoundland and Labrador
  Application 2005-1346-7
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-7

CBG Gander - New transmitter in Glovertown


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBG Gander, in order to operate an FM transmitter in Glovertown to rebroadcast the programming of its national, English-language network service Radio One, and to delete the existing AM transmitter CBNG.


The new transmitter will operate at 101.5 MHz (channel 268A) with an effective radiated power of 1,276 watts.


The CBC indicated that the new FM transmitter would replace the low-power AM transmitter CBNG Glovertown, and would improve the quality of the Radio One service in this region.


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


The licensee is authorized, by condition of licence, to simulcast the programming of CBG Gander on the CBNG transmitter for a transition period of three months following the commencement of operation of the new FM transmitter. The licensee must then cease operation of its AM transmitter CBNG Glovertown.


The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry 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 29 March 2008. 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 that date.
