Application 2011-1311-7

CBK-FM-4 Swift Current – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to change the technical parameters of the transmitter CBK-FM-4 Swift Current by increasing the effective radiated power from 4,710 to 10,740 watts (non-directional antenna). All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The CBC indicated that the change would maximize the use of its transmitter and improve signal quality in its coverage area.

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 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.
