CBR Calgary – New transmitter in Lake Louise

  1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language AM radio programming undertaking CBR Calgary (Radio One) in order to operate an FM transmitter in Lake Louise, Alberta. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. The new transmitter will operate at 103.9 MHz (channel 280A1) with an effective radiated power of 130 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -413.7 metres).
  3. The CBC noted that CBR’s Radio One programming is currently broadcast in Lake Louise via a low-power radiocommunication distribution undertaking (RDU) operated by the Lake Louise Community Association (LLCA), a community-owned broadcaster. The licensee indicated that the LLCA is no longer able to remain operational and cannot continue providing Radio One service to the community through its RDU.
  4. 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.
  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 14 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.
