CKYK-FM Alma - New transmitter in Alma
The Commission approves the application by Groupe Radio Antenne 6 inc. (Antenne 6) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CKYK-FM Alma in order to operate a low-power FM transmitter in Alma.
The new transmitter will operate at 96.3 MHz (channel 242LP) with an effective radiated power of 43 watts. The licensee indicated that the addition of the new transmitter will solve a reception problem relating to the signal of CKYK-FM.
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.
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 April 2010. 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.
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.
