Ottawa, 20 July 1995
Decision CRTC 95-471
BBS Ontario Incorporated (formerly South Western Ontario Broadcasting Incorporated)
Wheatley, Chatham, Windsor and area, Ontario - 940637200
Licence amendment for CHWI-TV
Following a Public Hearing in Toronto beginning on 3 October 1994, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CHWI-TV Wheatley by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at Windsor, operating on channel 60, with an effective radiated power of 580 watts.
The licensee indicated that the new transmitter will improve the coverage of the CHWI-TV Wheatley signal. The Commission notes that CHWI-TV broadcasts programs produced for and directed to Chatham and Windsor residents as well as programming originating from CFPL-TV London.
The Commission notes that, as a result of objections made by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission, the licensee was required to revise its proposed channel from 6 to 60 and the proposed effective radiated power from 87 watts to 580 watts. It further notes that these revisions will not affect the proposed coverage area of the new transmitter in any significant way.
This approval is 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 this decision or, where the licensee applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete the construction and commence operations before the expiry of this period and that an extension is in the public interest, within such further periods of time as are approved in writing by the Commission.
Should construction not be completed within the twelve-month period stipulated in this decision or, 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 expiry of the period of time granted herein or upon the termination of the last approved extension period.
The Commission acknowledges the interventions received in support of these applications.
Allan J. Darling
Secretary General
