Ottawa, 8 July 1999

Decision CRTC 99-162

Rawlco (Alberta) Ltd.

Calgary and Banff, Alberta - 199805975

Application processed by
Public Notice CRTC 1999-80
dated 6 May 1999

Increase in power for CKIS-FM-1

1.  The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CKIS-FM Calgary, by increasing the effective radiated power of its transmitter, CKIS-FM-1 Banff, from 9 watts to 45 watts.

2.  The licensee also proposes to relocate the Banff transmitter 8 kilometres to the northeast of the presently authorized site. The licensee indicated that the coverage area will be reduced as a result of the relocation but populated areas will remain relatively unaffected. The relocation will reduce the multipath distortion that affects reception.

3.  The Commission authorizes the licensee to operate the undertaking on the basis of the contours and particulars resulting from the above-mentioned changes.

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 above-mentioned amendment will only be valid when the Department of Industry certifies to the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a Broadcasting Certificate has been or will be issued.

This decision is to be appended to the licence. It is available in alternative format upon request, and may also be viewed at the following Internet site:
