CFFB Iqaluit – New transmitters in Puvirnituq, Kuujjuarapik, Inukjuak, Salluit and Kuujjuaq (Fort Chimo)
1. The Commission approves the applications by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language radio programming undertaking CFFB Iqaluit, Nunavut, in order to operate low-power FM transmitters in Puvirnituq, Kuujjuarapik, Inukjuak, Salluit and Kuujjuaq (Fort Chimo), Quebec. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with these applications.
2. The transmitters will operate in accordance with the following technical parameters:
|Location||Frequency||Channel||Average effective radiated power||Effective height of antenna above average terrain|
|CFFB-FM-8 Puvirnituq||103.5 MHz||278LP||50 watts||35.7 metres|
|CFFB-FM-4 Kuujjuarapik||103.5 MHz||278LP||50 watts||29.1 metres|
|CFFB-FM-6 Inukjuak||103.5 MHz||278LP||50 watts||-0.1 metres|
|CFFB-FM-7 Salluit||103.5 MHz||278LP||50 watts||-71.4 metres|
|CFFB-FM-5 Kuujjuaq (Fort Chimo)||103.5 MHz||278LP||50 watts||10 metres|
3. The CBC also requested the revocation of its broadcasting licence for the short wave radio undertaking CKCX-SW Sackville, New Brunswick. It indicated that the new transmitters will ensure that the population of the aforementioned locations continues to be served by the news and regional information programming of its Radio One service when CKCX-SW Sackville ceases operation.
4. Given the licensee’s request and pursuant to sections 9(1)(e) and 24(1) of the Broadcasting Act (the Act), the Commission revokes the broadcasting licence for CKCX-SW Sackville effective 1 November 2012.
5. The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Act, the authority for the new transmitters 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.
6. Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for low-power unprotected FM services, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.
