Ottawa, 26 September 1989
Decision CRTC 89-759
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
McBride, British Columbia - 890332000
Following a Public Hearing in the National Capital Region on 27 June 1989, the Commission approves the application for a licence for an FM radio broadcasting transmitting undertaking at McBride on the frequency 92.1 MHz, channel 221A, with an effective radiated power of 850 watts to rebroadcast the programming of the CBC's English-language AM radio network originating from CBYG-FM Prince George. The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1994, 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 CBXM McBride, which currently rebroadcasts the programming of the CBC's English-language AM radio network service, within twelve months of the date on which the new FM transmitter becomes operational. The Commission expects the CBC to cease the operation of CBXM 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 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 DOC that it will issue a Technical Construction and Operating Certificate.
Fernand Bélisle
Secretary General
