Public Hearing at Regina, Saskatchewan

CBCT-FM Charlottetown - New transmitter at St. Edward


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBCT-FM Charlottetown, in order to operate an FM transmitter at St. Edward to rebroadcast the programming of the CBC's national English-language network service, Radio Two.


The new transmitter will operate on frequency 101.1 MHz (channel 266B1) with an effective radiated power of 1,910 watts.


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


The CBC stated that the proposed transmitter would be necessary should the Commission approve an application by the CBC to convert CBA Moncton to the FM band (2006-0763-2). If that application were approved, the residents of St. Edward would no longer receive the signal of CBA Moncton.1


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 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 11 January 2009. 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 that date.
