Application 2013-0727-3

CFNR-FM Terrace and its transmitter VF2073 Quesnel – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Northern Native Broadcasting (Terrace, B.C.) to change the authorized contours of VF2073 Quesnel, a transmitter for the Type B Native radio programming undertaking CFNR-FM Terrace, by increasing the transmitter’s average effective radiated power from 1.6 to 6.5 watts (non-directional antenna) and the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 81 to 236.2 metres, and by relocating the transmitter site. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.

2. The licensee indicated that the transmitter’s current site has been tampered with, resulting in empty carrier signals and other unauthorized changes.

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.

4. 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.
