Public Notice CRTC 1999-193
dated 29 November1999


Licence amendments for CINC-FM


The Commission approves the applications to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CINC-FM Thompson (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add transmitters at Fox Lake and Lake Manitoba, each operating on frequency 93.5 MHz, (channel 228LP), with an effective radiated power of 23.1 watts and 37 watts, respectively; and Gillam, operating on frequency 95.7 MHz, (channel 239LP), with an effective radiated power of 37 watts.



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 a given service should optimum utilization of the broadcasting spectrum so require.



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.



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.



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.
