Ottawa, 15 March 1989
Decision CRTC 89-73
Réseau des Appalaches (FM) Ltée
Thetford Mines, Victoriaville and Lac-Mégantic, Quebec - 882620800 - 882619000
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1989-7 dated 19 January 1989, the Commission approves the applications by Réseau des Appalaches (FM) Ltée to utilize the 103.3 MHz frequency (channel 277B) with an effective radiated power of 16,600 watts at Thetford Mines and the 101.7 MHz frequency (channel 269A) with an effective radiated power of 2,660 watts at Lac-Mégantic.
In Decision CRTC 88-475 dated 26 July 1988, the Commission approved the licensee's request to operate French-language FM radio undertakings in the communities noted above, but rejected the proposed technical parameters. Further, the Commission required the licensee to consult with Commission staff and the Department of Communications (DOC), and to submit revised technical parameters for the proposed station at Thetford Mines and its rebroadcaster at Lac-Mégantic. The Commission notes that the technical changes herein approved are in accordance with the Commission's directives and fully address the concerns raised in Decision CRTC 88-475.
In accordance with paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the Department of Communications that it will issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate.
The Department of Communications has advised the Commission that this proposal is technically acceptable, but that issuance of a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate is conditional on the resolution of any problems involving interference to aeronautical NAV/COM services.
The Commission acknowledges the supporting intervention received from the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians (NABET).
Fernand Bélisle Secretary General
