CFWH Whitehorse - New transmitter in Dawson

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CFWH Whitehorse, in order to add an AM transmitter in Dawson to broadcast the programming of CFWH.
2. The new transmitter will replace the transmitter CBDN-FM Dawson, which operates on the FM band. The new AM transmitter will operate at 560 kHz, Class C, with a transmitter power of 400 watts, day-time and night-time.
3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
4. The CBC is authorized, by condition of licence, to simulcast the programming of CFWH on the FM band for a period of three months following the commencement of operation of the new AM transmitter. The CBC will then cease operation of its FM transmitter CBDN-FM Dawson.
5. The Commission reminds the CBC that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
6. The transmitter 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 18 August 2006. 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.
