CBGA-FM Matane – New transmitter in Matapédia
- The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language radio programming undertaking CBGA-FM Matane, Quebec, in order to operate an FM rebroadcasting transmitter in Matapedia. The new transmitter will allow listeners to receive programming from ICI Radio-Canada Première originating from CBGA-FM. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
- The new transmitter will operate at 101.7 MHz (channel 269A) with an effective radiated power of 268 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -38.4 meters).
- The CBC indicated that the new transmitter will replace the AM rebroadcasting transmitter CBGA-1 Grande Anse, New Brunswick, and will improve the quality of the signal provided to listeners.
- 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 notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
- 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 July 2016. 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.
