Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-311

  Ottawa, 24 July 2006
  Maritime Broadcasting System Limited
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

Application 2006-0584-2
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-67
29 May 2006


CFCY-FM Charlottetown - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Maritime Broadcasting System Limited to change the authorized contours of the radio programming undertaking CFCY-FM Charlottetown, by increasing the average effective radiated power from 73,300 watts to 100,000 watts, by increasing the antenna height and by relocating the transmitter.
2. The Commission notes that the undertaking initially approved by the Commission in CFCY Charlottetown - Conversion to FM band, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-89, 24 March 2006, has not commenced operations.
3. Maritime Broadcasting System Limited has advised the Commission that the proposed changes will be the result of the antenna being co-located on a transmission tower on the site of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, which is located west of the licensee's initially proposed location. Consequently, the licensee will not need to erect its own transmission tower.
4. The Commission received 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.
