Ottawa, 5 February 1990
Decision CRTC 90-72
CHUM Limited
Montreal, Quebec - 890982200
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1989-124 dated 7 November 1989, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CHTX Montreal by changing the frequency from 980 kHz to 990 kHz, by increasing the transmitter power from 10,000 watts to 50,000 watts and by moving the transmitter and antenna system approximately 11 kilometers south-westerly from the actual site.
The licensee has indicated that these technical changes will improve its signal quality in Montreal and increase its original coverage area.
The Commission received an intervention from the Town Council of Ville de Mercier opposing this application because of concern about potential interference. In reply, CHUM Limited stated that, as required by the Department of Communications (DOC), it has made a commitment to rectify any valid complaint of interference caused by CHTX's transmitter. Moreover, CHUM Limited pointed out that during the course of site selection for the proposed 50,000 watt operation, it did receive a resolution of support from Ville de Mercier. In light of the foregoing and of the fact that CHUM Limited's proposal is technically acceptable to DOC, the Commission is satisfied that the intervener's concerns have been adequately addressed.
