Ottawa, 20 October 1988
Decision CRTC 88-767
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Radium Hot Springs, British Columbia -873998900
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region on 26 July 1988, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Radium Hot Springs on the frequency 94.5 MHz, channel 233, with an effective radiated power of 78 watts to rebroadcast the programs of the CBC English-language AM radio network originating from CBU Vancouver.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1992, subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued.
The Commission notes that the use of this 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 CBKV Radium Hot Springs and CBUQ Lake Windermere, which currently broadcast the programs of the CBC English-language AM radio network service, within one year of the date on which the new transmitter becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease operation of CBKV and CBUQ within this time frame and to inform the listeners of the aforementioned changes.
In accordance with paragraph 22(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will issue a licence to the applicant if it is in receipt of written notification from the Department of Communications, within two months of the date of this decision, that it will issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate. No licence will be issued if the Commission does not receive this notification within said period or, where the applicant applies to the Commission and satisfies the Commission that it is unable to obtain said notification before the expiry of this two-month period and that an extension of this period is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.
