CBU Vancouver and its transmitter CBU-1-FM Abbotsford – Licence amendment and technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language AM radio programming undertaking CBU Vancouver in order to change the frequency of its transmitter CBU-1-FM Abbotsford from 101.7 MHz (channel 269A) to 88.5 MHz (channel 203B1), and to change the authorized contours of CBU-1-FM by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 67 watts to 2,390 watts (maximum ERP from 316 watts to 6,000 watts), by decreasing the effective height of the antenna above average terrain from 150.4 metres to 121.2 metres and by moving the antenna. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. The Commission notes that the transmitter's authorized contours will be significantly increased as a result of the new technical parameters.

Condition prior to the implementation of the new technical parameters

3. 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.
