Decision CRTC 2001-402

2001 London Alliance Canada Summer Games Host Society Inc.

Radio licence for a special event


The Commission approves the application for a broadcasting licence for an English-language FM radio programming undertaking at London. The new station will broadcast the 2001 Canada Summer Games. It will broadcast information for the Games, including location and time of every event, changes in schedules as well as weather information.


The licence will only be effective for the duration of the event, from 11 August to 25 August 2001. The station will operate on frequency 107.7 MHz (channel 299A), with an effective radiated power of 780 watts, using the existing transmitting facilities of CFPL-FM and CFPL-TV London.


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.


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.


The Commission acknowledges the interventions submitted in support of this application. 

Secretary General
