Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Lac-Mégantic, Quebec
Application 2008-0942-8, received 9 July 2008 Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-66 23 July 2008
CBVE-FM Québec - New transmitter in Lac-Mégantic
The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBVE-FM Québec in order to operate a temporary low-power FM mono transmitter in Lac-Mégantic. The new transmitter will operate at 104.1 MHz (channel 281LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts for a period of three months following the date of this decision.
The licensee indicated that the transmitter will broadcast the programming of CBVE-FM Québec and ensure the continuity of the national network service of Radio One to Lac-Mégantic while the municipality of Lac-Mégantic conducts renovations on the site of the low-power AM transmitter CBMO, which is currently unserviceable.
The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with 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.
Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.
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: http://www.crtc.gc.ca.
