CBU-FM Vancouver - New transmitter in Prince George


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBU-FM Vancouver, in order to operate a transmitter in Prince George to rebroadcast the programming of its national English-language network service Radio Two.


The new transmitter will operate at 90.3 MHz (channel 212A) with an effective radiated power of 151 watts.


The Commission notes that the above-mentioned transmitter is presently used by the Prince George Community FM Stereo Society (the Stereo Society) for its radiocommunication distribution undertaking (RDU) to distribute the programming of CBC's Radio Two service out of Vancouver.


The Stereo Society indicated that, upon approval of this application, the CBC will take over the operation and maintenance of the Stereo Society's facility.


The Stereo Society has therefore requested the revocation of its licence for the RDU authorized to serve Prince George, upon the approval of the CBC's application. Accordingly, the Commission has revoked the broadcasting licence issued to the Stereo Society for the above-mentioned undertaking in Revocation of licence, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-260, also published today.


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