Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-440

French-language FM radio station in Calgary - Technical change


The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to decrease the effective radiated power of its French-language FM radio undertaking in Calgary from 100,000 watts to 10,000 watts.


In New FM radio programming undertaking at Calgary with a transmitter at Edmonton, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-133, 7 May 2002, the Commission approved an application by the CBC to operate a new French-language FM radio programming undertaking serving Calgary. However, the Commission noted that the Department of Industry (the Department) had determined that the use of the proposed FM frequency at the effective radiated power of 100,000 watts would create interference and was therefore not acceptable to Nav Canada.


Accordingly, the CBC filed this application as corrective measures that it proposes to put in place to satisfy the Department's requirements.


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


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.
