Decision CRTC 2001-6


Ottawa, 11 January 2001


Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
St. John's and Corner Brook, Newfoundland 


Application processed by Public Notice CRTC 2000-147 dated 27 October 2000


Addition of a transmitter of CBN-FM


The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBN-FM St. John's (the originating station), by authorizing the licensee to add a transmitter at Corner Brook. The transmitter will operate on frequency 91.1 MHz (channel 216A) with an effective radiated power of 3,000 watts.


The transmitter will offer the CBC's Radio Two service.


The authority will be effective and the licence will be amended only 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 that this application is conditionally technically acceptable, subject to determination that there will be no unacceptable interference with NAV/COM services. When the Department has certified that a broadcasting certificate has been or will be issued, the amendment approved in this decision will be valid (section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act).
