CBYK-FM Kamloops – New transmitter at Cache Creek

  1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language radio programming undertaking CBYK-FM Kamloops, British Columbia, to operate a transmitter at Cache Creek to rebroadcast the programming of its national English-language network service Radio One. The new transmitter will replace the low-power AM transmitters CBKS Cache Creek and CBWA Ashcroft. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. The new transmitter will operate at 93.5 MHz (channel 228A1) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 143 watts (maximum ERP of 1,127 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of -59.1 metres).
  3. The CBC indicated that the new transmitter will be installed on a new tower that will be rebuilt due to wildfires and will be shared with the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Limited PartnershipFootnote 1 at their current site. It adds that the new transmitter will improve the quality of its Radio One signal in Cache Creek and Ashcroft and its vicinity.
  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 in operation by no later than 4 May 2020. To request an extension, the licensee must submit a written request to the Commission at least 60 days before that date, using the form available on the Commission’s website.
