Ottawa, 8 May 1989
Decision CRTC 89-263
Petrie Telecommunications Ltd.
Ottawa, Ontario -881200000
Following a Public Hearing in Toronto on 13 March 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence to operate four low-power French-and English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertakings in the National Capital Region located east and west of Ottawa along Highway 417, on the frequencies 96.5 MHz and 99.9 MHz (channels 243 and 260 respectively), to broadcast a tourist information radio service. Although the applicant had originally proposed to use the 88.3 MHz frequency it subsequently revised its proposal to utilize 99.9 MHz. Two transmitters will be located at each site and operate with an effective radiated power of 6 watts.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1993, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
It is a condition of licence that the authority granted herein be implemented within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the applicant applies to the Commission and satisfies the Commission that it cannot implement its authority before the expiry of this twelve-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.

Secretary General
