Application processed by Public Notice CRTC 1999-69 dated 27 May 1999
Increase in power for CBLR-FM
1. The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CBLA-FM Toronto, by increasing the effective radiated power of its transmittter CBLR-FM Parry Sound, from 50 watts to 180 watts.
2. The Commission notes that the licensee also proposes to relocate the transmitter north of Parry Sound for which no approval is required.
3. The Commission notes that CBLR-FM will continue to operate on frequency 89.9 MHz, channel 210, and that the power increase will result in the upgrade from low power to Class A1. The CBC stated that this amendment "will economically improve English (language) radio coverage provided to the community and its vicinity".
4. The Commission authorizes the licensee to operate the undertaking on the basis of the contours and particulars resulting from the above-mentioned changes.
5. The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable. The Department will only issue a Broadcasting Certificate once it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.
6. In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the above-mentioned amendment will only be valid when the Department of Industry certifies to the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a Broadcasting Certificate has been or will be issued.
