Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-196

  Ottawa, 23 May 2006
  CHRY Community Radio Incorporated
Toronto, Ontario
  Application 2006-0122-0
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-32
16 March 2006

CHRY-FM Toronto - Technical changes

1. The Commission approves the application by CHRY Community Radio Incorporated to change the authorized contours of the community-based campus radio programming undertaking CHRY-FM Toronto, by increasing the effective radiated power (ERP) from 50 watts to an average ERP of 158 watts, and by increasing the antenna height.
2. The licensee submitted that the proposed technical changes will improve the quality of CHRY-FM's signal. In the licensee's view, this improvement will lead to greater community involvement in CHRY-FM.
3. The Commission received many interventions in support of this application.
4. The Commission notes that the increase in power will change CHRY-FM's status from that of a low-power unprotected service to a regular Class A1 service.
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.
