Ottawa, 19 October 1993
Decision CRTC 93-648
Okanagan Radio Limited
Oliver and Osoyoos, British Columbia - 920464500
New FM transmitter at Oliver
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1993-88 dated 17 June 1993, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CJOR (the originating station) by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at Oliver, operating on the frequency 102.9 MHz (channel 275) with an effective radiated power of 58 watts.
The transmitter will have an effective radiated power of 58 watts rather than 180 watts, as had been indicated in Public Notice CRTC 1993-88.
The applicant is the licensee of the transmitter CJOR-1 Oliver which rebroadcasts, on the AM band, the programs of CJOR. The present application is for authority to replace CJOR-1 with a new transmitter operating on the FM band. The licensee will cease operation of CJOR-1 upon implementation of the FM transmitter. In approving this application, the Commission has taken into account the fact that the conversion from the AM band to the FM frequency 102.9 MHz, one which is designated for use in the Oliver area, will result in more consistent and better quality service.
The Department of Communications (DOC) has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will only be issued once it has been determined that the 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 a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.
This approval is also subject to the requirement that construction of the transmitting facilities be completed and that they be in operation within twelve months of the date of receipt of the DOC notification referred to in the preceding paragraph or, where the licensee 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.
Should the Commission refuse to approve an extension of time requested by the licensee, the authority granted shall lapse and become null and void upon the termination of the last approved extension period.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
