Application 2013-0898-2

CFAR-FM Flin Flon – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Arctic Radio (1982) Limited (Arctic Radio) to change the technical parameters of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CFAR-FM Flin Flon, Manitoba by changing the licence class from A1 to A, increasing the average effective radiated power from 191 to 600 watts (non-directional antenna) and by decreasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 55.1 to 27.7 metres. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2. In CFAR Flin Flon – Conversion to the FM Band, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2013-118, 12 March 2013, the Commission approved Arctic Radio’s application to convert CFAR from the AM to the FM band. The licensee indicated that the technical parameters it had proposed for the transmitter site as well as the ground elevation were incorrect. Further, the licensee indicated that it had not been able to successfully conclude negotiations to share an antenna with another broadcaster so it must install a new antenna lower on the tower with different technical parameters.

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.
