Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-490

  Ottawa, 1 October 2003
  CHCD Inc.
Simcoe, Ontario
  Application 2003-0006-2
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2003-34
8 July 2003

CHCD-FM Simcoe - Technical changes


The Commission approves the application by CHCD Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CHCD-FM Simcoe in order to change the frequency from 106.7 MHz (channel 294B) to 98.9 MHz (channel 255B) and to increase the effective radiated power from 3,420 watts to 14,370 watts.


The licensee indicated that the proposed changes are intended to resolve long-standing coverage deficiencies of the existing signal as well as to improve its financial situation within its principal market.


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