CBAF-FM Moncton - New transmitter in Bon Accord


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBAF-FM Moncton in order to operate a transmitter at Bon Accord to rebroadcast the programming of its national, French-language network service La Première Chaîne.


The new transmitter will operate at 107.5 MHz (channel 298C) with an average effective radiated power of 26,900 watts.


CBC has indicated that it has received several complaints from residents of Grand Falls regarding reception problems originating from its transmitter CBAF-FM-4 Edmundston and that it wishes to improve the reception of its programming service La Première Chaîne in the Bon Accord region and in particular in the municipality of Grand Falls.


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 22 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.
