  Ottawa, 20 December 1994
  Decision CRTC 94-936
  Ash-Creek Television Society
Cache Creek and Ashcroft, British Columbia - 940193600

New low-power FM radio station

  Following a Public Hearing in Toronto beginning on 3 October 1994, the Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English-language low-power FM radio programming undertaking at Cache Creek and Ashcroft, on the frequency 105.9 MHz, channel 290LP, with an effective radiated power of 17.7 watts.
  The Commission will issue a licence expiring 31 August 1999, subject to the conditions specified in this decision and in the licence to be issued.
  The licence term granted herein, while less than the maximum of seven years permitted under the Broadcasting Act, will enable the Commission to consider the renewal of this licence in accordance with the Commission's regional plan and to better distribute the workload within the Commission.
  This station will provide information to tourists and will operate 24 hours a day all year.
  In Public Notice CRTC 1993-95 dated 28 June 1993 and entitled "A Licensing Policy for Low-Power Radio Broadcasting", the Commission stated that the licensees of low-power radio undertakings should be subject to a condition of licence that would define their programming in such a way as to ensure that they do not change their programming and begin to offer the same service as conventional licensees, without Commission approval. Accordingly, it is a condition of licence that this station be used solely to broadcast tourist information.
  The Department of Industry, Science and Technology (DIST) 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, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DIST that its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.

Secretary General
