Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2005-50

  Ottawa, 13 May 2005
  The Commission has received the following applications. The deadline for submission of interventions/comments is 17 June 2005.
Item Applicant and Locality
1. Rogers Broadcasting Limited
Moncton, New Brunswick
2. Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBF-FM-10)
Magog, Quebec
1. Moncton, New Brunswick
Application No. 2005-0186-8
  Application by Rogers Broadcasting Limited (Rogers) relating to the licence of radio programming undertaking authorized in News/Talk commercial FM radio station in Moncton, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-517, 26 November 2004.
  Rogers proposes to change the authorized contours by increasing the average effective radiated power from 40,300 watts to an effective radiated power of 70,000 watts, by decreasing the antenna height and by relocating the transmitter (non-directional antenna/antenna height 211 metres).
  The licensee explains that when it initially applied for the FM station at Moncton, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) could only offer to share use of its TV tower at Caledonia which is a considerable distance from the centre of Moncton. Rogers notes that it would have been restricted to the use of a directional antenna at this site. Rogers states that the CBC has since received approval to rebuild the radio tower on Lutes Mountain and to upgrade its existing omnidirectional antenna. Consequently, Rogers is now able to locate at the Lutes Mountain site and use the omnidirectional antenna.
  This change would improve both the coverage and signal quality throughout the Greater Moncton area.

2. Magog, Quebec
Application No. 2004-0613-3
  Application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the licence of  radio programming undertaking CBF-FM-10 Sherbrooke, Quebec.

  The licensee also proposes to change the authorized contours of CBF-FM-2 Magog by decreasing the average effective radiated power from 1,010 watts to 420 watts, by increasing the antenna height and by relocating the transmitter (maximum effective radiated power from 4,030 watts to 1,610 watts/antenna height to 575 metres).
