Ottawa, 7 May 1999

Mr. Gary Dymond
Hinton (Obed Mountain Coal Mine Site), Alberta – 199805983
26 March 1999 Public Hearing
National Capital Region
New radiocommunication distribution undertaking to distribute CISN-FM and CFMI-FM
1. The Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence to carry on a radiocommunication distribution undertaking at Hinton (Obed Mountain Coal Mine Site). The undertaking will distribute in non-encrypted mode, using two very low-power radio transmitters, CISN-FM Edmonton on frequency 94.5 MHz, channel 233VLP and CFMI-FM New Westminster, British Columbia, on frequency 99.3 MHz, channel 257VLP. Each programming service will have an effective radiated power of 7.4 watts.
2. The licence will only be issued and effective when the undertaking is 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 undertaking is 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.
3. 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.
4. In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence 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.
