CBU-2-FM Vancouver – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to modify the technical parameters of CBU-2-FM Vancouver, a rebroadcasting transmitter of the English-language AM radio programming undertaking CBU Vancouver, by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 8,900 to 36,900 watts (maximum ERP from 19,500 to 97,600 watts) and by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 567.2 to 605.8 metres. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged.1 The Commission received an intervention in support of this application.

2. The CBC stated that this amendment is necessary to operate the rebroadcasting transmitter at its full power, which was made possible by the cessation of the operation of channel 6 (CHEK-TV) on Saturna Island.

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 notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.

Secretary General
