CHAK Inuvik – New transmitter at Tuktoyaktuk
- The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language AM radio programming undertaking CHAK Inuvik in order to operate an FM transmitter at Tuktoyaktuk to replace the AM transmitter CBAC Tuktoyaktuk. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
- The new transmitter will operate at 99.9 MHz (channel 260A) with an average effective radiated power of 261 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 21.1 metres).
- As is the case for CBAC, the new transmitter will rebroadcast the programming of the CBC’s national English-language network service Radio One originating from CHAK. The licensee stated that this change will improve the quality of the Radio One service in Tuktoyaktuk.
- 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 11 September 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.
