CIWV-FM Hamilton/Burlington - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Burlingham Communications Inc. to change the authorized contours of the radio programming undertaking CIWV-FM Hamilton/Burlington by increasing the average effective radiated power from 11,390 watts to 21,400 watts.
2. The licensee indicated that the proposed change would improve service to listeners in its principal market of Hamilton/Burlington and surrounding areas, particularly the western and northern parts of the City of Hamilton and in north-east Burlington. The licensee added that the proposed change would maximize the use of frequency 94.7 MHz while respecting the interference protections to other Canadian and U.S. stations.
3. The Commission notes that this technical change will increase significantly the station's authorized contour.
4. The Commission received several interventions in support of this application.
5. The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
