CJOJ-FM Belleville - Technical amendment


The Commission approves the application filed by Belleville Radio Limited to decrease the effective radiated power of the radio programming undertaking CJOJ-FM Belleville from 50,000 watts to 42,000 watts.


CJOJ-FM is now owned by Starboard Communications Ltd. (formerly John Sherratt, on behalf of corporation to be incorporated). This change in ownership was approved in CJOJ-FM and CHCQ-FM Belleville - Acquisition of assets, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-206, 26 July 2002.


The present application also proposed to relocate CJOJ-FM's transmitter to a site near Oak Lake, approximately 25 kilometres west of the existing site, for which Commission approval is not required.


The applicant indicated that the proposed technical changes are intended to improve the quality of CJOJ-FM's signal and to provide a more reliable signal to its central market of Belleville and Trenton.


The Commission did not receive any intervention in connection with this application.


The Department of Industry (the Department) has advised the Commission that, while this application is conditionally technically acceptable, it will only issue a broadcasting certificate when it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.


The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective once the Department has notified the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
