CKRW Whitehorse - New transmitters at Atlin and Inuvik


The Commission approves the applications by Klondike Broadcasting Company Limited to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CKRW Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, in order to operate transmitters at Atlin, British Columbia and Inuvik, Northwest Territories.


The applicant proposed to operate the new transmitter at Atlin at 98.7 MHz (channel 254 LP) with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 48.28 watts. However, the Department of Industry (the Department) indicated that the Atlin transmitter's ERP will be 36.1 watts.


The new transmitter at Inuvik will operate at 98.7 MHz (channel 254 LP) with an ERP of 44 watts.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with these applications.


The Department has advised the Commission that, while these applications are conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue broadcasting certificates 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 broadcasting certificates will be issued.


Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM services, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.


Each 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 31 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.
