Applications 2014-0602-5 and 2014-0603-3

CBTK-FM Kelowna – New transmitter in New Denver; CBLA-FM Toronto – New transmitter in Bancroft

  1. The Commission approves the applications by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licences for the English-language radio programming undertakings CBTK-FM Kelowna, British Columbia, and CBLA-FM Toronto, Ontario, in order to operate FM transmitters in New Denver and Bancroft, respectively, to replace the AM transmitters CBUI New Denver and CBLV Bancroft. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding these applications.
  2. The transmitters will operate in accordance with the following technical parameters:
Location Frequency Channel Effective radiated power Effective height of antenna above average terrain
New Denver 102.5 MHz 273LP  50 watts -199.5 metres
Bancroft 99.3 MHz 257A 269 watts -29.7 metres
  1. The licensee stated that these changes will improve the quality of the Radio One signal providing English-language programming to listeners in New Denver and Bancroft.
  2. The Commission reminds the licensee that pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the authority for the new transmitters will only be effective when the Department of Industry (the Department) notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that broadcasting certificates will be issued.
  3. Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision regarding CBTK-FM’s transmitter in New Denver 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.
  4. The transmitters must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 23 September 2016. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
