Yorkton and Swan River, Manitoba

Application 2002-0018-9
Public Notice CRTC 2002-22
1 May 2002

CFGW-FM Yorkton - Transmitter in Swan River


The Commission approves the application by Yorkton Broadcasting Company Limited and Walsh Investments Inc., partners in a general partnership known as GX Radio Partnership to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CFGW-FM Yorkton, in order to operate a transmitter in Swan River.


The new transmitter will operate at 95.3 MHz (channel 237A), with an effective radiated power of 860 watts.


No interventions were filed in connection with this application.


The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate 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, the amendment to the licence approved in this decision will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months of the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 16 October 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.
