CIAM-FM-14 Wabasca – Technical amendment

1. The Commission approves the application by CIAM Media & Radio Broadcasting Association relating to the broadcasting licence for the low-power English-language Type B community radio programming undertaking CIAM-FM Fort Vermilion. The licensee proposed to amend the technical parameters of its transmitter CIAM-FM-14 Wabasca by changing the antenna site and by decreasing the effective height of the antenna above average terrain from 63.25 to 50 metres. The licensee stated that this change was necessary due to a lack of space on the tower that it had originally proposed. There were no interventions in connection with this application. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 2 below.

Condition prior to the implementation of the new technical parameters

2. 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 applicant will not be able to implement the new technical parameters approved in this decision.
