CBCT-FM Charlottetown - New transmitter in Elmira

1. 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 a transmitter in Elmira to rebroadcast the programming of its national, English-language network service Radio One.
2. The new transmitter will operate at 92.3 MHz (channel 222A) with an average effective radiated power of 940 watts.
3. The CBC indicated that the new FM transmitter is intended to provide Radio One service to the eastern tip of Prince Edward Island, including the community of Souris, which is situated just outside CBCT-FM's coverage area.
4. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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 10 August 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.
