Public Notice CRTC 2001-81
dated 13 July 2001

Decrease in power for CHNO-FM


The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CHNO-FM Sudbury, by decreasing the effective radiated power from 100,000 watts to 11,000 watts.


The licensee states that the proposed reduction in power is combined with a relocation of the transmitter to a site 2.9 kilometres from the current site. These changes are necessary in order to resolve interference problems with aeronautical NAV/COM services.


Currently, CHNO-FM is a Class C1 station operated on the assigned frequency 103.9 MHz (channel 280). The power reduction approved herein will downgrade CHNO-FM to a Class B station.


The Commission authorizes the licensee to operate the undertaking on the basis of the contours and particulars resulting from the above-mentioned change.


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.


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 amended.
