Ottawa, 16 May 1996
Decision CRTC 96-153
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Kitwanga, British Columbia - 951430800
Addition of a transmitter
Following Public Notice CRTC 1996-37 dated 15 March 1996, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CFPR Prince Rupert, by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at Kitwanga, operating on frequency 94.3 MHz (channel 232A1) with an effective radiated power of 186 watts.
The Commission notes that the CBC intends to shut down its AM transmitter CBKK Kitwanga within twelve months of the date on which the new transmitter becomes operational.
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
