Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-57

  Ottawa, 12 February 2007
  Tiessen Media Inc.
Cochrane, Alberta
  Application 2006-1505-7
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-163
19 December 2006

Use of frequency 95.3 MHz by the new transmitter of CFIT-FM Airdrie

1. The Commission approves the application by Tiessen Media Inc. (Tiessen) to operate the new FM transmitter in Cochrane at 95.3 MHz (channel 237A1) with an effective radiated power of 100 watts.
2. Tiessen filed this application in response to the Commission's direction in Eclectic Adult Contemporary FM station in Airdrie and Cochrane, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-325, 2 August 2006. In that decision, the Commission approved in part an application by Tiessen for a broadcasting licence to operate an English-language commercial FM radio programming undertaking at Airdrie, with a transmitter at Cochrane. The applicant originally proposed to operate the new transmitter at 99.1 MHz (channel 256LP). However, in CBK Regina, CHFA and CBX Edmonton, CKSB St-Boniface and CBW Winnipeg, and CBR Calgary - Addition of FM transmitters, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-84, 16 March 2006, the Commission awarded the use of frequency 99.1 MHz to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Consequently, the Commission denied Tiessen's proposed use of 99.1 MHz and stated that it would only issue a licence to Tiessen if it submitted an application proposing the use of another FM frequency and technical parameters for the transmitter at Cochrane that are acceptable to both the Commission and the Department of Industry (the Department).
3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
4. 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.
5. The Commission reminds the applicant that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, no licence may be issued until the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
