Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-213

Ottawa, 30 July 2002

3937844 Canada Inc. (formerly Telemedia Radio (West) Inc.)
Calgary, Alberta

Application 2001-0890-4
Public Hearing at Québec, Quebec
18 February 2002

Proposed frequency - new FM in Calgary


The Commission received an application by Telemedia Radio (West) Inc. (Telemedia) for the use of frequency 103.1 MHz (channel 276C), with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts, for the operation of its English-language FM station in Calgary.


In Three new radio stations to serve Calgary, Decision CRTC 2001-172, 12 March 2001 (Decision 2001-172), the Commission approved an application by Telemedia to operate a new English-language FM radio undertaking serving Calgary. However, the Commission awarded the frequency proposed by Telemedia to a competing applicant at the same hearing and stated that it would only issue a licence to Telemedia if it submitted an application proposing the use of another FM frequency acceptable to both the Commission and to the Department of Industry (the Department). The present application was filed in response to the Commission's proviso. Subsequently, Telemedia changed its corporate name to 3937844 Canada Inc.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.


The Commission approves the application.


The Department has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it 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 Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, no licence may be issued until the Department has notified the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
