Application 2010-1685-8, received 19 November 2010

CFLN-FM Goose Bay – New transmitter at Northwest River

1.      The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language radio programming undertaking CFLN-FM Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, to add an FM transmitter at Northwest River. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The transmitter will operate at 95.9 MHz (channel 240LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 22.2 metres).

3.      The licensee stated that the addition of the new transmitter would allow it to adequately serve the population of Northwest River.

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 of Industry (the Department) notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.

5.      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.

6.      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 7 February 2013. 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.
