  This undertaking was initially approved in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-89, 24 March 2006, CFCY Charlottetown - Conversion to FM band. To date, this undertaking has not commenced operation.
  The applicant advised that the proposed changes would be the result of the antenna being co-located on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's site which is 17 kilometres west of their initially proposed location. This change will remove the applicant's need to erect its own transmission tower.
