Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-275

  Ottawa, 30 June 2006

Vancouver and Squamish, British Columbia

CBU Vancouver - New transmitter in Squamish


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


The new transmitter will operate at 98.3 MHz (channel 252A) with an average effective radiated power of 1,550 watts.


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


The CBC stated that the lease for the site of its transmitter CBRU Squamish will terminate 24 July 2006 and that it has been unable to find an alternate location for this transmitter. In the circumstances, the CBC concluded that the addition of an FM transmitter in Squamish would be the best technical and economical solution to the situation.


The CBC also indicated that CBRU will go off the air on 24 July 2006. After that date, the CBC's Radio One service will be provided by the new FM transmitter approved in this decision.


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.
