Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-361

  Ottawa, 1 October 2007
  Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Moncton and Bon Accord, New Brunswick
  Application 2007-1068-3, received 20 July 2007
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2007-94
10 August 2007

CBAF-FM Moncton and its transmitter CBAF-FM-21 Bon Accord - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBAF-FM Moncton, in order to change the frequency of its transmitter CBAF-FM-21 Bon Accord, authorized in Broadcasting Decision 2007-96, from 107.5 MHz (channel 298C) to 91.7 MHz (channel 219C), and to change the authorized contours by decreasing the transmitter's average effective radiated power from 26,900 watts to 24,400 watts.
2. The Commission notes that there will be no significant change to the station's authorized contours.
3. The CBC filed this application because, in accordance with Canada-U.S. agreements on broadcasting frequencies, the frequency of 107.5 MHz approved for the CBC station in Broadcasting Decision 2007-96 was not acceptable to the Federal Communications Commission, the U.S. regulatory agency that governs broadcasting in that country.
4. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
5. The Department of Industry (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.
6. The Commission reminds the applicant that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
