  PREAMBLE
  For items 1 to 18
  On 13 May 2005, the Commission issued Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2005-48, calling for applications for a broadcasting licence to carry on a radio programming undertaking to serve Calgary, Alberta.
  As well, on 14 July 2005, the Commission issued Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2005-67, calling for applications for a broadcasting licence to carry on a radio programming undertaking to serve Lethbridge, Alberta.
  Further to both calls, the Commission has received a significant number of applications for licences to serve the aforementioned markets (Items 1 to 18). A number of these applications are proposing to use similar frequencies and are therefore technically mutually exclusive.
  a) Calgary market technically mutually exclusive applications:
  Items 3, 4, 5, 7, 9 and 10 are technically mutually exclusive proposing the use of the frequency 92.9 MHz.
  Items 11 and 12 are technically mutually exclusive proposing the use of the frequencies 99.1 MHz and 99.5 MHz respectively.
  Items 8 and 13 are technically mutually exclusive proposing the use of the frequency 100.3 MHz.
  These applications along with items 11 (use of the frequency 106.1 MHz), 1, 2 and 6 will be treated as competitive radio applications for the Calgary market.
  b) Lethbridge market technically mutually exclusive applications:
  Items 15, 16 and 17 are technically mutually exclusive proposing the use of the frequency 94.1 MHz.
  These applications along with items 14 and 18 will be treated as competitive radio applications for the Lethbridge market.
