Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-404

Ottawa, 6 December 2002

Radio Western Inc.
London, Ontario

Application 2001-1438-0
Public Hearing in the National Capital Region
6 May 2002

CHRW-FM London - Technical changes


The Commission approves an application by Radio Western Inc. to amend its broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CHRW-FM London, Ontario, in order to relocate its transmitter 2.7 kilometres east of the existing site to an office tower located at One London Place, to change its frequency from 94.7 MHz (channel 234A) to 94.9 MHz (channel 235A) and to increase its effective radiated power from 3,000 watts to 3,500 watts.


The licensee stated that the proposed changes will result in a better quality signal to listeners located in the eastern part of its licensed area who are currently experiencing poor reception of CHRW-FM. The licensee also stated that if the application is approved there will be a potential loss of some coverage in the southwestern sector of its secondary service area but this loss does not pose a problem for the undertaking.


The Commission received 13 interventions in support of the 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 when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
