Ottawa, 3 May 1994
Decision CRTC 94-227
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Corner Brook and St. Andrew's, Newfoundland - 940014400
Addition of a transmitter
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1994-23 dated 9 March 1994, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBY Corner Brook (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at St. Andrew's, operating on frequency 93.7 MHz (channel 229A) with an effective radiated power of 1,000 watts.
The Commission notes that the new transmitter will replace the low-power transmitter CBNH Searston. According to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the proposed FM transmitter will improve the quality of the signal and provide service to a larger area and population. The licensee will cease operation of CBNH upon implementation of the new FM transmitter.
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.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
