CFNO-FM Marathon - New transmitters


The Commission approves the applications by North Superior Broadcasting Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CFNO-FM Marathon in order to operate transmitters in Nakina and in White River.


The new transmitters will operate at 107.1 MHz (channel 296 LP) with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 49 watts in Nakina, and at 100.7 MHz (channel 264 LP) with an ERP of 10 watts in White River.


The licensee had proposed an ERP of 50 watts in Nakina and 20 watts in White River. The Department of Industry (the Department) certified 49 watts, and 10 watts, respectively


No intervention were filed in connection with these applications.


The Department has advised the Commission that, while these applications are conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue broadcasting certificates when 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, this authority will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that broadcasting certificates will be issued.


Each transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 28 August 2004. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted at least 60 days before this date.


Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for low-power unprotected FM services, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select other frequencies if the Department so requires.
