Ottawa, 30 June 1989
Decision CRTC 89-423
Burgeo Broadcasting System
Burgeo, Newfoundland - 881742100
Following a Public Hearing in Moncton on 10 April 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence to carry on a broadcasting transmitting undertaking consisting of four low-power FM radio services to serve Burgeo. This undertaking will distribute the programs of VOCM-FM St. John's, CIRK-FM Edmonton and CFMI-FM Vancouver, received via satellite from the CANCOM network and CBNR-FM Ramea, received over-the-air, on the frequencies 88.5 MHz (channel 203), 90.5 MHz (213), 92.3 MHz (222) and 89.3 MHz (207) respectively, each with an effective radiated power of 50 watts (10 watts transmitter power).
The Commission will issue a licence to Burgeo Broadcasting System expiring 30 September 1990, to carry on a multi-channel broadcasting transmitting undertaking, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and 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 the cable system serving Burgeo. 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 is conditional on the resolution of any problems involving interference with 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 Department of Communications that it will issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate.
It is a condition of licence that construction of the undertaking be completed and that it be in operation within six months of the date of receipt of written notification from the DOC that it will issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this six-month period that it cannot complete the construction and begin the operation of the undertaking before the expiry of this six-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.
