Ottawa, 2 December 1998
Decision CRTC 98-516
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Toronto and Peterborough, Ontario - 199716198
Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 1998-95
dated 10 September 1998
Change in frequency and power decrease for CBCP-FM
1. The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CBLA-FM Toronto, by changing the frequency of its transmitter CBCP-FM Peterborough from 93.5 MHz (channel 228B) to 98.7 MHz (channel 254B) and by decreasing the effective radiated power from 10,400 watts to 10,170 watts. The Commission notes that CBCP-FM's coverage area will not change significantly.
2. The Commission authorizes the licensee to operate the undertaking on the basis of the contours and particulars resulting from the above-mentioned changes.
3. The authority will only be effective and the licence will only be amended when the new transmitting facilities are constructed and ready to begin operation. When the licensee has completed construction and is prepared to commence operation, it must advise the Commission in writing. If the transmitting facilities are not constructed and ready to operate within 12 months of today's date, extensions to this time frame may be granted provided that the licensee applies in writing to the Commission before the 12-month period or any extension of that period expires.
4. The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable. The Department will only issue a Broadcasting Certificate once it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
5. In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence amendment and grant the authority to operate when it receives notification from the Department of Industry that its technical requirements have been met, and that a Broadcasting Certificate will be issued.
