  The submission of this application serves to regulate the previous authority granted in CKGF Grand Forks - Licence amendment, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-356, 18 August 2004.
  In this decision, the Commission approved an application by Boundary Broadcasting Ltd. (the former licensee) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking consisting of the transmitters CKGF Grand Forks, CKGF-1-FM Christina Lake, CKGF-2-FM Greenwood and CKGF-3-FM Rock Creek, in order to delete CKGF Grand Forks and to recognize that programming now originates from CKGF-2-FM Greenwood.
  In order to change the class of licence for CKGF-2-FM Greenwood to reflect that it is now an FM radio programming undertaking, Vista has submitted this application for a new FM service in Greenwood to effectively replace the non-existing CKGF undertaking and to add the rebroadcasting facilities at Rock Creek and Christina Lake.
  The new station would operate on frequency 96.7 MHz (channel 244A) with an effective radiated power of 40 watts (non-directional antenna/antenna height of 574.5 metres).
  The rebroadcasting transmitter at Christina Lake would operate on frequency 93.3 MHz (channel 227A1) with an effective radiated power of 88 watts (non-directional antenna/antenna height of -243.5 metres).
  The rebroadcasting transmitter at Rock Creek would operate on frequency 103.7 MHz (channel 279A) with an effective radiated power of 130 watts (non-directional antenna/antenna height of -22.9 metres).
  The Commission may withdraw this application from the public hearing if it is not advised by the Department of Industry, at least twenty days prior to the hearing, that the application is technically acceptable.
