Ottawa, 29 August 1989
Decision CRTC 89-612
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Maynooth, Ontario - 880381900
Following a Public Hearing in Toronto on 13 March 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an English-language FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at Maynooth on the frequency 89.3 MHz, channel 207, with an effective radiated power of 130 watts to rebroadcast the programs of the CBC English-language AM radio network originating from CBL Toronto.
The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1992, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
The CBC has indicated that it intends to shut down CBOD Maynooth, which currently broadcasts the programs of the CBC English-language AM radio network service, within twelve months of the date on which the new transmitter becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBOD within this time frame and to inform listeners of the changes herein approved. The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this proposal is technically acceptable, but that issuance of a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate (TCOC) is conditional on the resolution of any problems involving interference to aeronautical NAV/COM services.
In accordance with paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that it will issue a TCOC.
It is a condition of this licence that construction of this undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within twelve months of the date of receipt of written notification from the DOC that it will issue a TCOC or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete implementation before the expiry of this period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further period of time as is approved in writing by the Commission.

Secretary General
