Ottawa, 11 January 1985
Decision CRTC 85-22
Eastern Ontario Broadcasting Company Limited
Brockville, Ontario - 840432900
Following a Public Hearing in Hull, Quebec on 27 November 1984, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CFJR Brockville by changing the frequency from 1450 kHz to 830 kHz; by increasing the day-time transmitting power from 1,000 watts to 5,000 watts; and, by changing the transmitter location.
The Commission considers that these changes in the station's parameters will result in a significant improvement in the quality of the signal received in Brockville and surrounding area, and will extend its daytime coverage contour by approximately thirty miles in all directions.
In approving this application the Commission has taken into account the licensee's undertaking to ensure that satisfactory service continues to be provided to its primary coverage area in line with its responsibility to provide a local service directed to meet the needs and interests of its audience in the Brockville-Prescott area. Furthermore, the Commission will expect the licensee to adhere closely to the following commitment made in this regard:
 It is not our intention to intrude on the excellent coverage provided to Ottawa-Hull by radio stations licensed to do so. We will not attempt to provide community service to this metropolitan area.
The Commission also notes that in Decision CRTC 84-1030 dated 13 December 1984, it approved an application to increase the night-time transmitting power of CFJR Brockville from 250 watts to 1,000 watts.
Fernand Bélisle Secretary General
