CHYR-FM Leamington - Technical changes

1. The Commission approves the application by Blackburn Radio Inc. to change the authorized contours of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CHYR-FM Leamington, by decreasing the average effective radiated power from 19,320 watts to 10,650 watts, by increasing the antenna height and by relocating the transmitter.
2. The applicant stated that the proposed changes will improve the signal quality for listeners residing in Essex County, who currently experience poor reception of CHYR-FM.
3. The Commission received interventions in support of this application.
4. 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.
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 notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
