Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-50

Ottawa, 20 February 2002

Shuswap Lakes Television Society
Scotch Creek, Sorrento, Blind Bay, Celista, Magna Bay, Eagle Bay and surrounding areas, British Columbia

Application 2001-0826-8
Public Hearing in the National Capital Region
14 January 2002

New radiocommunication distribution undertaking


The Commission approves the application by Shuswap Lakes Television Society for a broadcasting licence to carry on a radiocommunication distribution undertaking consisting of a very low-power FM radio transmitter to serve the above-mentioned localities.


Subject to the requirements of this decision, the Commission will issue a licence, expiring 31 August 2008. This licence will be subject to the conditions specified in the licence to be issued.


This undertaking will distribute, in non-encrypted mode, the programming service of CBC Radio Two, on the frequency 103.5 MHz, channel 278VLP, with an effective radiated power of 5 watts.


The technical parameters approved in this decision are for a very low-power unprotected FM service. Accordingly, the applicant would have to select another frequency for the operation of the service should optimum utilization of the broadcasting spectrum so require.


The Commission has examined the interventions received in support of this application.


The Commission will only issue the licence, and it will only be effective at such time as:

  • 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, having advised that the application is conditionally technically acceptable, has determined that there is no unacceptable interference with NAV/COM services and indicated that it will issue a broadcasting certificate (section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act).
