CFWH Whitehorse and its transmitter CBDB Watson Lake - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), the licensee of the radio programming undertaking CFWH Whitehorse, to change the authorized contours of its transmitter CBDB Watson Lake by increasing the transmitter power from 40 watts to a daytime transmitter power of 400 watts and a nighttime transmitter power of 165 watts.
2. The CBC has indicated that the increase in power will significantly improve both daytime and nighttime coverage in Watson Lake and surrounding areas.
3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
4. The Commission notes that the authorized contours of the transmitter will be expanded significantly as a result of the increase in power and that CBDB's status will change from that of a low-power unprotected service to that of a regular Class C service.
5. 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.
