Decision CRTC 2001-211


Ottawa, 6 April 2001


Area "H" North T.V. Society
New Denver, British Columbia


Application processed by Public Notice CRTC 2001-28 dated 20 February 2001


Licence amendment


The Commission approves the application for authority to amend the licence for the radiocommunication distribution undertaking serving New Denver, by authorizing the licensee to:

  • move the Open Learning Agency (Knowledge Network) from channel 19 to channel 8 and reduce the transmitter power from 100 to 10 watts;
  • add transmitters to distribute, in non-encrypted mode, the television programming services CHAN-TV (BCTV) Vancouver, KING-TV (NBC) Seattle, KIRO-TV (CBS) Seattle, KCTS-TV (PBS) Seattle, and KOMO-TV (ABC) Seattle, using channels 3, 6, 10, 11 and 13, each with a transmitter power of 10 watts.
  • add transmitters to distribute, in non encrypted mode, the radio programming services CBC Radio 2 on frequency 98.3 MHz, channel 252LP, with an effective radiated power of 5.1 watts, CFMI-FM on frequency 96.3 MHz, channel 242LP, with an effective radiated power of 20 watts, and KISN-FM on frequency 94.3 MHz, channel 232LP with an effective radiated power of 5.1 watts.


With regard to the FM radio transmitters, 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.


The technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service. The applicant would have to select another frequency for the operation of the service if required to do so to permit the best use of the frequency band.
