Decision CRTC 99-515

  Ottawa, 30 November 1999
  Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Winnipeg, St. Boniface and Brandon, Manitoba – 199906343 – 199906351 – 199906369
  Applications processed by Public Notice CRTC 1999-167 dated 8 October 1999
  Changes in power for transmitters CBWV-FM, CBWS-FM and CKSB-8-FM at Brandon
  1. The Commission approves the applications to amend the broadcasting licences for the radio programming undertakings CBW and CBW-FM Winnipeg and CKSB St. Boniface, by changing the effective radiated power of the transmitters located at Brandon, as set out below:
Call Sign Transmitter Locality Applications No. Effective radiated power (watts)
        From To
CBW CBWV-FM Brandon 199906343 100,000 90,000
CBW-FM CBWS-FM Brandon 199906351 100,000 90,000
CKSB CKSB-8-FM Brandon 199906369 21,500 21,700
  2. The licensee indicates that replacing the existing system with a multi-channel antenna system will allow the three FM signals to be combined into a single antenna. In addition to the change in power, coverage will be slightly increased for CBWV-FM and CKSB-8-FM but will remain unchanged for CBWS-FM.
  3. The Commission hereby authorizes the licensee to operate the undertakings on the basis of the contours and particulars resulting from the above-mentioned changes.
  4. The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that these applications are conditionally technically acceptable. The Department will only issue Broadcasting Certificates 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 amendments will only be valid when the Department of Industry certifies to the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that broadcasting certificates have been or will be issued.
