Application 2010-0970-5, received 11 June 2010  

CFXE-FM Edson – New transmitter at Grande Cache  

1.      The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language, commercial radio programming undertaking CFXE-FM Edson by replacing its existing AM rebroadcasting transmitter CFXG Grande Cache with an FM rebroadcasting transmitter. The Commission received an intervention in support of this application.

2.      The new transmitter will operate on frequency 93.3 MHz (channel 227A1) with an effective radiated power of 190 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -81.7 metres).[1]

3.      The licensee stated that the low-power AM signal has become unreliable due to an increase in the level of various types of interference, and a rise in listener expectations with regard to quality of service.

4.      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.

5.      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 September 2012. 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.
