CBTK-FM Kelowna – New transmitter in Lillooet

1.      The Commission approves an application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language radio programming undertaking CBTK-FM Kelowna, British Columbia, by adding a new FM transmitter in Lillooet to rebroadcast the programming of CBTK-FM. The new transmitter will replace the CBC’s existing low-power transmitter in Lillooet. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The transmitter will operate at 92.7 MHz (channel 224A1) with an effective radiated power of 90 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -816.5 metres).

3.      The CBC submitted this application following a request by the city of Lillooet to relocate its current AM rebroadcasting transmitter to an alternate site designated by the city. Instead of building a new AM transmitter site, CBC proposed to install an FM mono rebroadcasting 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 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.

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 26 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.
