- The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to change the authorized contours of CBYT-FM Campbell River, British Columbia, a transmitter of the English-language radio programming undertaking CBCV‑FM Victoria (Radio One). Specifically, the CBC proposed to change the transmitter class from A1 to A, increase the average effective radiated power from 88 to 250 watts and increase the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 104 to 114.8 metres. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
- The CBC stated that the changes are necessary to improve the quality of the Radio One signal in Campbell River.
- 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.
