CKSB-10-FM Winnipeg and its transmitter CKSB-6-FM Dryden – Technical change

  1. The Commission approves an application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) relating to the broadcasting licence for the French-language radio programming undertaking CKSB-10-FM Winnipeg, Manitoba. The licensee wishes to change the technical parameters of CKSB-6-FM Dryden, Ontario, a rebroadcasting transmitter of CKSB-10-FM, by relocating the transmitter to a new site in Dryden, by decreasing the average and maximum effective radiated power from 1,500 to 1,290 watts, and by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 100 to 105.2 metres.
  2. The CBC indicated that the current tower is obsolete and that fixing it would require considerable work. It considered that moving the transmitter to a new site would be more cost-effective than to proceed with the repairs.
  3. The Commission received an intervention regarding this application from an individual. The intervention does not relate to the proposed technical change, but instead offers general comments to the effect that low-power CBC radio stations should all be converted to the FM band. The complete public record for this application can be found on the Commission’s web site,, or by using the application number set out above.
  4. 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.
  5. The transmitter 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 7 July 2017. 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.
