Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-110

  Ottawa, 11 April 2007
  Radio Gaspésie Inc.
Fontenelle and Gaspé, Quebec
  Application 2007-0065-0
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2007-16

CJRG-FM Gaspé - New transmitter at Fontenelle


The Commission approves the application by Radio Gaspésie Inc. (Radio Gaspésie) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CJRG-FM Gaspé in order to operate an additional transmitter at Fontenelle.


The licensee indicated that the addition of this transmitter will allow it to better serve the population of Fontenelle by broadcasting the programming of CJRG-FM. The licensee further indicated that the additional transmitter will improve the signal quality in part of its core market and that the proposed contours will remain within the authorized contours of CJRG-FM.


The transmitter will operate at 97.3 MHz (channel 247LP) with an effective radiated power of 43 watts.


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


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 (the Department) notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM services, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.


The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 11 April 2009. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
