Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-467

  Ottawa, 6 September 2006
  Coopérative Radio-Halifax-Métro limitée
Halifax, Nova Scotia
  Application 2006-0812-7
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-84
12 July 2006

Use of frequency 98.5 MHz by the new community radio station in Halifax


The Commission approves the application by Coopérative Radio-Halifax-Métro limitée to operate its new French-language Type A community FM radio programming undertaking at 98.5 MHz (channel 253B1) with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 2,350 watts. The applicant had originally proposed to operate its new station at 89.7 MHz (channel 209B1) with an ERP of 1,925 watts.


The applicant filed this application further to the Commission's direction in Community radio station in Halifax, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-139, 12 April 2006 (Decision 2006-139). In Decision 2006-139, the Commission stated that it would only issue a licence for this station provided that the applicant submitted an application proposing the use of another FM frequency that would be acceptable to both the Commission and to the Department of Industry (the Department).


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.


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.


The Commission reminds the applicant that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, no licence may be issued until the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
