Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-68

Ottawa, 24 February 2003

Native Communication Inc.
Thompson, Camperville, Dauphin River, Ilford and Lynn Lake, Manitoba

Applications 2002-0596-5; 2002-0597-3; 2002-0598-1; 2002-0599-9
Public Hearing at St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador

CINC-FM Thompson - New transmitters


The Commission approves the applications by Native Communication Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CINC-FM Thompson, Manitoba, in order to operate transmitters in Camperville, Dauphin River, Ilford and Lynn Lake, to broadcast the programming of CINC-FM.


The new transmitters will operate at the following technical parameters:



Effective radiated power


93.9 MHz / 230LP

28.6 watts

Dauphin River

93.5 MHz / 228LP

28.6 watts


93.9 MHz / 230LP

28.6 watts

Lynn Lake

96.9 MHz / 245LP

38.8 watts


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with these applications.


The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that, while these applications are 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, this authority 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.


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.


The transmitters 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 24 February 2005. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before this date.
