Application 2013-0327-1

CBYG-FM Prince George – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the technical parameters of the English-language radio programming undertaking CBYG-FM Prince George by changing the antenna’s radiation pattern from non-directional to directional, and by decreasing the average effective radiated power from 100,000 to 52,300 watts, as well as the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 331.5 to 329.6 metres.  

2. The licensee stated that the amendment would allow it to focus the station’s coverage to serve the populated areas rather than the mountains, thereby reducing the consumption of electricity and providing cost savings.

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.
