Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-310

  Ottawa, 14 November 2008
  Newcap Inc.
Camrose, Alberta
  Application 2008-0934-5, received 8 July 2008
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-69 28 July 2008

CFCW Camrose - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. (Newcap) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language AM radio programming undertaking CFCW Camrose by changing the frequency from 790 kHz to 840 kHz. The implementation of the new technical parameters is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 4 below.
2. Newcap indicated that the proposed change in frequency would restore night time coverage to listeners in north-central Alberta, which has been reduced by noise and interference over time.
3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

Condition prior to the implementation of the new technical parameters

4. 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 new technical parameters approved in this decision.
