  30 October 2000 Public Hearing in Calgary

New low-power radio service to broadcast hockey games of the Moose Jaw Warriors

  The Commission approves the application for a new low-power English-language FM radio station at Moose Jaw. The terms and conditions of licence are set out in the appendix to this decision.
1. The applicant proposes a service limited to the broadcast of the hockey games of the Moose Jaw Warriors including all pre and post game shows and a weekday one-hour noon-time broadcast related to the promotion of the events and games of the hockey club.
2. The station will operate only during the hockey season. Advertising will be broadcast.
3. In its licensing policy for low-power radio broadcasting undertakings, the Commission indicated that the licences for these undertakings would be subject to conditions that would define programming so as to ensure that licensees do not begin to offer the same service as a conventional licensee, without prior Commission approval (PN 1993-95). These conditions are set out in the appendix to this decision.
4. The Commission notes that no intervention opposing this application was filed.

Appendix to Decision CRTC 2001-46


Terms of licence for the low-power FM radio programming undertaking at Moose Jaw

  A licence will be issued and effective when the licensee confirms in writing that it is ready to begin operation. This must take place within 12 months of today's date. Any request for an extension to that deadline requires Commission approval and must be made in writing within that period.
  The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, subject to determination that there is no unacceptable interference with NAV/COM services. When the Department certifies that a broadcasting certificate will be issued, the Commission will issue the licence and the licensee may begin operation (section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act).
  The licence, when issued, will expire 31 August 2007.
  As proposed, the station will operate on the frequency 90.9 MHz, channel 215LP, with an effective radiated power of 27.5 watts.
  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.

Conditions of licence

  The licence will be subject to the conditions specified below and to any other condition specified in the licence to be issued.

1. The licensee must use the station solely for the purpose of broadcasting the hockey games of the Moose Jaw Warriors including all pre and post game shows, and a one-hour noon-time program broadcast Monday to Friday related to the promotion of events and games of the hockey club.


2. The licensee must broadcast no musical selections, except as incidental background music.
