  Application 2006-1393-6
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2006-153
23 November 2006


Use of frequency 101.5 MHz by the new FM radio station in Calgary

1. The Commission approves the application by CHUM Limited to operate its new English-language FM radio programming undertaking in Calgary at 101.5 MHz (channel 268C1) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 48,000 watts.1 The applicant had originally proposed to operate its new station at 90.3 MHz (channel 212C1) with an ERP of 100,000 watts.
2. The applicant filed this application further to the Commission's direction in Hot Adult Contemporary FM radio station in Calgary, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-324, 2 August 2006 (Decision 2006-324). In Decision 2006-324, 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 and technical parameters that would be acceptable to both the Commission and the Department of Industry (the Department).
3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
4. 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 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.
