Application 2011-0416-6, received 24 February 2011

CJTK-FM-1 North Bay – New transmitter at Mattawa

1.      The Commission approves the application by Eternacom Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CJTK-FM-1 North Bay, Ontario in order to add an FM transmitter at Mattawa. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The transmitter will operate at 93.9 MHz (channel 230LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -21 metres).

3.      The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate when it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.

4.      The Commission reminds the applicant that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, no licence may be issued until the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.

5.      Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.

6.      The undertaking 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 6 December 2013. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted at least 60 days before this date.
