Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 1998-94
dated 4 September 1998
Licence amendment for CKIS-FM
1. The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CKIS-FM Calgary (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add two low power FM transmitters at Invermere and Lake Louise. The licensee will operate the Invermere transmitter on frequency 97.3 MHz (channel 247LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts and the Lake Louise transmitter on frequency 93.9 MHz (channel 230LP) with an effective radiated power of 30 watts.
2. The technical parameters approved in this decision are for low power unprotected FM services. Accordingly, the applicant would have to select another frequency for the operation of these services should optimum utilization of the broadcasting spectrum so require.
3. This authority will only be effective and the licence will only be amended at such time as construction of these transmitters is completed and it is prepared to commence operations. If the construction of these transmitters is not completed within twelve months of the date of this decision or, where the applicant applies to the Commission within this period and satisfies the Commission that it cannot complete construction and commence operation before the expiry of this period, and that an extension of time is in the public interest, within such further periods of time as are approved in writing by the Commission, the licence will not be amended. The applicant is required to advise the Commission (before the expiry of the twelve-month period or any extension thereof) in writing, once it has completed construction and is prepared to commence operation.
4. The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, and that Broadcasting Certificates 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.
5. 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 Broadcasting Certificates will be issued.
