Ottawa, 18 September 1989
Decision CRTC 89-699
CJMR 1190 Radio Ltd.
Mississauga, Ontario - 891141400
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1989-73 dated 6 July 1989, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CJMR Mississauga by changing the frequency from 1190 kHz to 1320 kHz and by increasing the transmitter power from 10,000 watts (day-time) to 20,000 watts (day and night).
The licensee has indicated that these technical changes will increase CJMR's coverage and will allow the station to extend its broadcasting hours with no change in programming, except in the percentages of various elements which will increase proportionally. In addition, the licensee has committed to respect its condition of licence to devote 17% of its broadcast week to ethnic programming, of which a minimum of 25% will be type A and B programming.
The Commission has noted the intervention by Rogers Broadcasting Limited, licensee of CFTR Toronto, stating that certain electronically-tuned car radios tuning in CJMR may experience interference from CFTR and CFGH Hamilton. The intervener expressed particular concern that CFTR not be held responsible for correcting such interference problems. In reply, the licensee referred to a letter from the Department of Communications (DOC) indicating that it does not consider that potential interference is a factor in the station's application to use the 1320 kHz frequency.
In accordance with paragraph 13(1)(b) of the Broadcasting Act, the Commission will only issue the licence amendment, and the authority granted herein may only be implemented, at such time as written notification is received from the DOC that it will issue an amendment to the Technical Construction and Operating Certificate.
