Application No. 2006-0924-0
  Application by Blackburn Radio Inc., on behalf of its subsidiary Bea-Ver Communications Inc., to amend the licence of  radio programming undertaking CKUE-FM Chatham.

  The licensee also proposes to change the authorized contours of CKUE-FM-1 Windsor by increasing the average effective radiated power from 1,950 watts to 3,840 watts (maximum effective radiated power 9,000 watts/antenna height of 74.5 metres).
  CKUE-FM-1 Windsor is currently operating as a synchronous frequency of CKUE-FM Chatham.
  The licensee states that the change in frequency and increase in power will reduce interference zone and provide a better signal for the traveling public in and around Windsor and Chatham.
