CIAM-FM Fort Vermilion and its transmitter CIAM-FM-7 Slave Lake – Technical changes

  1. The Commission approves the application by CIAM Media & Radio Broadcasting Association to change the authorized contours of CIAM-FM-7 Slave Lake, Alberta, a rebroadcasting transmitter for the English-language community radio programming undertaking CIAM-FM Fort Vermilion, Alberta. Specifically, the licensee requested to relocate the transmitter 36 kilometres from its original site and to increase the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 147.3 to 201.3 metres. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. The licensee stated that the relocation of the transmitter is necessary given the 30 November 2016 expiry date for the lease for the current transmitter site.
  3. 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.
  4. The transmitter must be operational with implemented technical changes 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 12 December 2018. 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.
