CFWC-FM Brantford - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by 1486781 Ontario Limited to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CFWC-FM Brantford in order to change the frequency from 99.5 MHz (channel 258LP) to 93.9 MHz (channel 230A1) and to change the authorized contours by increasing the effective radiated power from 50 watts to 250 watts.
2. The Commission received two interventions in support of this application.
3. In Country FM radio station in Kitchener-Waterloo, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-153, 14 May 2003, the Commission awarded 99.5 MHz to Larche Communications Inc., on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated, with an expectation that it would absorb the costs of moving the low-power, unprotected station CFWC-FM to another frequency.
4. As a result of the technical amendments approved in the present decision, CFWC-FM's status will change from that of a low-power unprotected service to a protected class A1 FM station. The licensee also indicated that the technical amendments will enable it to provide a better quality signal to listeners in the Brantford area.
5. 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.
6. 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.
