Application by the CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION to amend the licence of the French FM radio station in Calgary, approved by Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-133.


The licensee proposes to decreasethe effective radiated power from 100,000 to 10,000 watts.


Further to CRTC's Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2002-133 dated 7 May 2002, the Commission noted that the Department of Industry (the Department) advised the Commission that the use of the FM frequency in Calgary was not acceptable to Nav Canada due to the fact that it created interference.

This application follows the Commission's above-mentioned requirements as corrective measures to getting Nav Canada's approval.
