Ottawa, 29 February 1988
Decision CRTC 88-128
Radio de la Baie Ltée
Bathurst, New Brunswick - 873182000
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1987-244 dated 18 November 1987, the Commission approves the application by Radio de la Baie Ltée for authority to use frequency 104.9 MHz (channel 285C) with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts, to provide the French-language FM radio service approved in Decision CRTC 87-576 dated 20 July 1987.
The Commission notes that originally, Radio de la Baie Ltée proposed to use the 97.1 MHz frequency. In Decision CRTC 87-576, the Commission awarded the use of the 97.1 MHz frequency to Radio Péninsule Inc. to operate a French-language community FM radio undertaking at Inkerman. Accordingly, Radio de la Baie Ltée was required to revise its technical proposal.
The Commission acknowledges the intervention from D.E.M. Allen and Associates Ltd. representing ATV New Brunswick, licensee of CKAM-TV Upsalquitch Lake, New Brunswick, regarding potential interference with the reception of the signal of CKAM-TV as well as the licensee's reply in which it assures the Commission that there is little risk of interference due to the location of the new station's transmitter and the filters which have been installed. Should any such interference occur, the licensee would be expected to undertake the necessary remedial action to correct the problem.
Further, the Commission notes that on 3 February 1988 the Department of Communications notified it that the use of the proposed frequency is technically acceptable and that it will issue technical certification to Radio de la Baie Ltée.
