CIAM-FM Fort Vermillion and its transmitter CIAM-FM-11 Vanderhoof – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by CIAM Media & Radio Broadcasting Association (CIAM Media) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language Type B community radio programming undertaking CIAM-FM Fort Vermillion in order to change the frequency of its transmitter CIAM-FM-11 Vanderhoof from 97.9 MHz (channel 250LP) to 98.5 MHz (channel 253LP). All other technical parameters remain unchanged. The Commission received one intervention in support of this application.
2. CIAM Media stated that the change in frequency is necessary due to unforeseen technical interference with a station in Prince George, British Columbia. The applicant discovered the interference during the on-air testing period with the Department of Industry (the Department).
3. 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.
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.
