2. London, Ontario
Application No. 2005-1198-2
  Application by Sound of Faith Broadcasting to amend the licence of radio programming undertaking CHJX-FM London.
  The licensee proposes to amend the licence by changing the frequency from 105.9 MHz (channel 290LP) to 98.1 MHz (channel 251A). The licensee also proposes to change the authorized contours by increasing the effective radiated power from 10 to 500 watts and by decreasing the antenna height.
  The Commission notes that the authorized contours of the station will be increased significantly resulting from the proposed technical changes.
  The Commission also notes that the increase in power would result in a change of the  CHJX-FM status from a low power unprotected service to a regular Class A1 service.
  The licensee wishes to increase the quality of the signal of the station.

3. Victoria, British Columbia
Application No. 2005-1211-2
  Application by Rogers Broadcasting Limited relating to the licence of television programming undertaking CHNU-TV Fraser Valley, British Columbia, known as OMNI BC.
  The licensee proposes to change the authorized contour of its transmitter authorized in CHNU-TV Fraser Valley, CIIT-TV Winnipeg - Acquisition of assets, new transmitter in Victoria, and new licences, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2005-207.

The change to the authorized contours would result from the relocation of the transmitter, the decrease of the antenna height and the increase of the average effective radiated power from 720 watts to 17,000 watts (maximum effective radiated power 17,700 watts/antenna height of 99.6 metres).
  The licensee indicates that the new site will improve the potential reliability of the OMNI BC signal and improve efficiencies in the construction of the antenna site.
  The authorized contours of the transmitter will be modified resulting from the relocation of the transmitter site, the increase in power and decrease in antenna height.
