Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-76

  Ottawa, 6 March 2007

Vancouver, British Columbia and
Dawson City, Yukon Territory

CBU-FM Vancouver - New transmitter at Dawson City


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBU-FM Vancouver, British Columbia, in order to operate a transmitter at Dawson City, Yukon Territory to broadcast the programming of its Radio Two service originating from CBU-FM Vancouver.


The new transmitter will operate at 104.9 MHz (channel 285A) with an effective radiated power of 413 watts.


The Commission received interventions in support of this application.


In CFWH Whitehorse - New transmitter in Dawson, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-358, 18 August 2004, the Commission approved an application by the CBC to replace CBDN-FM, its Radio One service transmitter in Dawson City, with a transmitter that operates on the AM band. The CBC indicated that the transmitter proposed in the present application will use CBDN-FM's existing infrastructure and will thus enable the licensee to provide its Radio Two service at minimal cost.


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 March 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.
