Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-90

Ottawa, 7 March 2003

Peace River Broadcasting Corporation Ltd.
Peace River, Fairview and High Prairie, Alberta

Application 2002-0457-9
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2002-76

CKKX-FM Peace River - New transmitters in Fairview and High Prairie


The Commission approves the application by Peace River Broadcasting Corporation Ltd. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CKKX-FM Peace River, in order to operate transmitters in Fairview and High Prairie.


The Commission received seven interventions in support of this application.


The new transmitters will both operate at 106.9 MHz (channel 295A) with an effective radiated power of 930 watts at Fairview and 2,000 watts at High Prairie.


The Commission notes that the licensee did not implement the transmitter for CKKX-FM in Valleyview that was to be operated at 106.9 MHz. This transmitter was approved in Addition of FM transmitters of CKKX-FM and CKYL at Valleyview, Decision CRTC 2000-216, 4 July 2000.


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, 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.


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 7 March 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.
