Ottawa, 28 September 1988
Decision CRTC 88-690
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Port-Aux-Basques, Newfoundland -873995500
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region on 7 June 1988, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Port-aux-Basques, on the frequency 91.9 MHz, channel 220A, with an effective radiated power of 1,280 watts, to rebroadcast the programs of the English-language AM radio network originating from CBY Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1989, subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued. This term will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence at the same time as that of CBY, the originating station.
The Commission notes that the use of this new FM frequency conforms with the guidelines set out in Public Notice CRTC 1985-142 dated 9 July 1985. The CBC has indicated that it intends to shut down CBNE Port-aux-Basques, which currently rebroadcasts the programs of the CBC English-language AM radio network service, no later than six months after the date on which the new transmitter becomes operational. Accordingly, the Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBNE within this time frame.

Secretary General
