Ottawa, 15 May 1996
Decision CRTC 96-152
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario - 951646900
 Licence amendment for CBON-FM Sudbury
Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-20 dated 14 February 1996, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBON-FM Sudbury, by increasing the effective radiated power of its transmitter CBON-FM-18 Sault Ste. Marie from 1,700 watts to 3,590 watts.
 This change, coupled with an increase in the effective height of the antenna, will result in the upgrading of the channel from Class A to Class B and improve the quality of the signal to the Sault Ste. Marie area.
 The Commission notes that although the coverage area will slightly increase, the licensee has indicated that estimates of the population within the authorized contours will remain unchanged.
 The Commission authorizes the licensee to operate the undertaking on the basis of the contours and particulars resulting from the above-mentioned changes.
 The Department of Industry 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 will only be granted, at such time as written notification is received from the Department of Industry that its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.
 This decision is to be appended to the licence.
 Allan J. Darling
 Secretary General
