Application 2010-1897-9, received 22 December 2010

CBKT-TV Regina – Licence amendment

1.      The Commission approves the application by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CBKT-TV Regina to add a post-transition digital transmitter to serve the population of Regina. The Commission received an intervention offering a general comment as well as an intervention in opposition, neither of which related directly to the substance of the present application. The public record for this proceeding is available on the Commission’s website at under “Public Proceedings.”

2.      The transmitter will operate on channel 9 with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 33,600 watts (maximum ERP of 60,000 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 207.2 metres).

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 of Industry (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 transmitter approved in this decision.

4.      The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 31 August 2011. The Commission expects the licensee to inform it in writing once the transmitter is in operation.
