Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-283

  Ottawa, 10 October 2008
  CTV Limited
Vancouver, British Columbia
  Application 2008-1011-0, received 23 July 2008
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-71
14 August 2008

CFUN Vancouver - Technical change


The Commission approves the application by CTV Limited to change the authorized contours of the radio programming undertaking CFUN Vancouver by relocating to a new transmitter site approximately eight kilometres south-east of the current transmitter site. The implementation of this technical change is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 5 below.


The licensee advised that the existing transmitter is deteriorated to the point that the station is unable to prove its antenna pattern.


The Commission notes that changing the transmitter site will result in a decrease in the coverage in the principal marketing area and consequently in a decrease in reached population of approximately 574,000 people.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

Condition prior to the implementation of the transmitter


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 a broadcasting certificate will be issued. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the licensee will not be able to implement the transmitter approved in this decision.
