CKPK-FM Vancouver – Technical changes

1. The Commission approves the application by Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Ltd. (the general partner) and Jim Pattison Industries Ltd. (the limited partner), carrying on business as Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Limited Partnership (Jim Pattison Broadcast Group) to change the authorized contours of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CKPK-FM Vancouver, by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 51,000 to 34,000 watts (maximum ERP from 100,000 to 70,000 watts), by increasing the antenna’s effective height above average terrain from 590.4 to 682.4 metres and by moving its transmission site. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2. Jim Pattison Broadcast Group has requested these technical changes as its current tower on Mount Seymour, approved in CKPK-FM and CFRO-FM Vancouver – Licence amendments and technical changes, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2011-580, 9 September 2011, has proven to be less efficient than the tower site proposed in the present application.

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 technical changes approved in this decision.
