Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-153

CKUA-FM Edmonton and its transmitter CKUA-FM-6 Red Deer - Technical change
The Commission approves an application by CKUA Radio Foundation (CKUA) to amend the broadcasting licence of the radio programming undertaking CKUA-FM Edmonton in order to change the frequency of its transmitter CKUA-FM-6 Red Deer from 101.3 MHz (channel 267C) to 107.7 MHz (channel 299C1).
CKUA filed this application in response to a request from CHUM Limited (CHUM). In Hot Adult Contemporary FM radio station in Calgary, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-324, 2 August 2006, the Commission approved in part an application by CHUM for a broadcasting licence to operate a new English-language commercial FM radio station in Calgary. The Commission stated in that decision that it would only issue a licence for this station provided that the applicant submitted an application proposing the use of another FM frequency and technical parameters that would be acceptable to both the Commission and the Department of Industry (the Department).
After reviewing the various frequencies that were available, CHUM determined that the frequency 101.5 MHz (channel 268C1) would best enable it to achieve the business plan it filed with the original Calgary FM application. However, the use of this frequency by CHUM would cause interference with CKUA-FM-6, the Red Deer rebroadcasting transmitter of CKUA-FM. CHUM subsequently contacted CKUA in order to determine whether CKUA would be prepared to change the frequency of its Red Deer transmitter to an alternate one in order to permit CHUM to use frequency 101.5 MHz (channel 268C1) for its new Calgary station. CKUA agreed to this request.
The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this 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, 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.
This decision is to be appended to the licence. It is available in alternative format upon request, and may also be examined in PDF format or in HTML at the following Internet site: www.crtc.gc.ca
