Ottawa, 21 October 1993
Decision CRTC 93-654
Martin Rosenthal
Cobourg and Mississauga, Ontario - 930046800
Change in technical parameters of CFMX-FM-1
Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1993-106 dated 16 July 1993, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CFMX-FM Cobourg by changing the technical parameters of its rebroadcasting transmitter CFMX-FM-1 Mississauga, by decreasing the effective radiated power from 43,100 watts to 13,300 watts and by relocating the transmitter from Mississauga to First Canadian Place in downtown Toronto.
The licensee states that these changes will not only improve the reception quality of CFMX-FM-1 within its coverage area, particularly in central Toronto, but also slightly extend its service to the north and northeast.
An intervention in opposition to this application was submitted by CILQ-FM, a division of the Westcom Radio Group Ltd., expressing concern that the power level could adversely impact the signal quality of CILQ-FM, due to the proximity of the two transmitter sites. Given these circumstances, CILQ-FM requested that the Commission impose a condition of licence requiring the licensee to take corrective action in the event interference occurs.
The Department of Communications has advised that the change of transmitting facilities is conditionally technically acceptable and further that the licensee has signed a commitment to take any remedial action should any interference occur. Accordingly, the Commission considers that a condition of licence as requested by CILQ-FM is unwarranted.
