Ottawa, 26 October 1992
Decision CRTC 92-737
Oxford Broadcasting Company Limited
Woodstock, Ontario - 912793700
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1992-35 dated 8 May 1992, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CKDK-FM Woodstock by changing the frequency from 102.3 MHz (channel 272B) to 103.9 MHz (channel 280C1), and by increasing the effective radiated power from 3,500 watts to 65,000 watts.
The applicant has stated that these changes will improve signal quality in the south and southeast portions of CKDK-FM's coverage area and would not result in a change in the station's current local programming focus on Woodstock and communities in its immediate vicinity and its regional focus on the remainder of Oxford County.
A further amendment requesting a minor relocation of transmitter was also noted in Public Notice CRTC 1992-35. The licensee has subsequently notified the Commission that no relocation is involved.
W. Murray Communications and Consulting Services Ltd., Middlesex Lambton Communications Corp., licensee of CJBK and CJBX-FM London, and Blackburn Communications Systems, licensee of CFPL and CFPL-FM London, submitted opposing interventions, expressing concern that the proposed power increase would have a negative effect on other stations in southern Ontario. The Commission is satisfied, however, that CKDK-FM's power increase will not have a significant impact on other radio broadcasters in the area. The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, and that an amendment to the Broadcasting Certificate will only be issued once it has been determined that the transmitter's proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
In accordance with subsection 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence amendment, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that its technical requirements have been met, and that an amendment to the Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.

Secretary General
