Decision CRTC 2001-717

Public Notice CRTC 2001-114
dated 6 November 2001

Frequency change for new FM station at Vernon


In Decision CRTC 2001-575, the Commission approved an application by Telemedia Radio (West) Inc. (Telemedia), to convert its AM station CICF Vernon to the FM band. The new station was to have operated using the frequency 105.5 MHz (channel 288C1).


Subsequent to that decision, NAV Canada determined that the 105.5 MHz frequency was technically unacceptable. The licensee was informed that the new FM station would have to use another frequency.


In this application, Telemedia proposes, as an alternative, the use of the FM frequency 105.7 MHz (channel 289C1). The Commission notes that the use of the frequency 105.7 MHZ will allow the licensee to implement the conversion of CICF from AM to FM, and therefore approves the application.


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 above-mentioned amendment will only be valid when the Department of Industry certifies to the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate has been or will be issued.
