Application 2011-0532-0, received 22 March 2011

CKYL Peace River – New transmitter in Manning

1.      The Commission approves the application by Peace River Broadcasting Corporation Ltd. (Peace River) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CKYL Peace River in order to operate an FM transmitter in Manning. 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) set out in paragraph 4.

2.      Peace River indicated that CKYL’s signal is experiencing significant deterioration due to low ground conductivity and an increase in electrical transmission lines. It submitted that the proposed technical amendment would enable the station to adequately serve the population of Manning and allow listeners of that community to receive programming originating from CKYL.

3.      The new transmitter will operate at 93.3 MHz (channel 227A) with an effective radiated power of 880 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -10.4 metres).

Condition prior to the implementation of the transmitter

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 applicant will not be able to implement the transmitter approved in this decision.

Implementation of the transmitter

5.      The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 17 October 2013. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
