The CRTC said Friday it has approved an application by Salt Spring Island Radio Corp. to amend its broadcasting licence for CFSI-FM Salt Spring Island in order to operate a low-power transmitter at Mount Bruce, B.C. In a release, the commission said that the new transmitter will operate at the 102.1 MHz frequency, serving the residents of south Salt Spring Island. The transmitter will operate with an average effective power of 20 watts with an antenna height of 391 metres, the CRTC further noted. The commission said that it received interventions in support of the application and one comment from CiTR Radio. CiTR was concerned that the proposed transmitter would interfere with its signals, as well as signals coming from CITR-FM Vancouver, which operates on the 101.9 MHz frequency, the CRTC said. But upon reviewing the application, the commission said that a certificate from the Department of Industry said that the new transmitter “does not indicate any potential interference with CITR-FM.” The CRTC approved the transmitter and said it must be operational within 24 months.
