Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-353

Ottawa, 6 November 2002

Durham Radio Inc.
Ajax and Sunderland, Ontario

Application 2001-1379-6
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2002-23
6 May 2002

CJKX-FM Ajax and its transmitter - Licence renewal


The Commission renews the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CJKX-FM Ajax and its transmitter CJKX-FM-1 Sunderland, from 1 December 2002 to 31 August 2009. The licence will be subject to the conditions set out in New licence form for commercial radio stations, Public Notice CRTC 1999-137, 24 August 1999.



Mr. Sydney Forsythe filed an intervention in connection with this application. While the intervener supported the renewal of CJKX-FM's licence, he expressed concern regarding the reception quality of the signal.


The Commission notes that it has not received any other complaints regarding the quality of CJKX-FM's signal and the Department of Industry has not identified any technical problems related to the transmission of the signal.


With respect to the difficulties that Mr. Forsythe is encountering in receiving the signal, the Commission notes that there are many different kinds of receivers of varying quality. Given that the licensee has not replied to the intervener, the Commission considers that the licensee should communicate with Mr. Forsythe to confirm whether or not it can offer a solution to the problem.

Other matter


In accordance with Implementation of an employment equity policy, Public Notice CRTC 1992-59, 1 September 1992, the Commission encourages the licensee to consider employment equity issues in its hiring practices and in all other aspects of its management of human resources.
