Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-348

  Ottawa, 6 September 2007
  Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Vancouver and Abbotsford, British Columbia
  Application 2007-0808-4, received 28 May 2007
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2007-72

CBU Vancouver - New transmitter at Abbotsford


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 at Abbotsford, British Columbia, to rebroadcast the programming of its national English-language network service Radio One.


The new transmitter will operate at 101.7 MHz (channel 269A) with an average effective radiated power of 67 watts.


The CBC indicated that the CBU Vancouver signal is deficient in Abbotsford and that the proposed FM transmitter will provide a more reliable service in Abbotsford and the surrounding area.


The CBC also noted that the Commission approved an application for this transmitter in Broadcasting Decision 2004-404. The transmitter was not operational by the Commission's deadline of 7 September 2006, and an extension of time was not requested. Consequently, the authority contained in Broadcasting Decision 2004-404 became null and void as of the deadline date.


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


The Commission reminds the licensee 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.


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 6 September 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.
