Application 2009-0456-7, received 6 March 2009

CIBW-FM Drayton Valley – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Ltd. (the general partner) and Jim Pattison Industries Ltd. (the limited partner), carrying on business as Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Limited Partnership (Pattison), to change the authorized contours of the radio programming undertaking CIBW-FM Drayton Valley by increasing the effective radiated power from 7,400 watts to 50,000 watts. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 4 below.

2. Pattison submitted that the requested technical change is necessary due to the potential for interference resulting from the implementation by Harvard Broadcasting Inc. (Harvard) of its new radio station CFEX-FM Calgary.

3. The Commission notes that the costs related to the technical change for CIBW-FM will be shared by both Harvard and Pattison.

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.
