The Commission has received the following applications:


1. SAINT JOHN, New Brunswick

Application (199902747) by MARITIME BROADCASTING SYSTEM LIMITED (MARITIME), P.O. Box 400, Halifax, Nova Scotia, B3J 2R2.

This application is a request to amend the broadcasting licence of radio station CJYC-FM Saint John, by decreasing the effective radiated power from 50,000 watts to 12,000 watts.
