Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-428

  Ottawa, 20 December 2007
  International Harvesters for Christ Evangelistic Association Inc.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
  Application 2007-1373-6, received 1 October 2007
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2007-121

CJLU-FM Halifax - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by International Harvesters for Christ Evangelistic Association Inc. to change the authorized contours of the English-language commercial Specialty FM radio programming undertaking CJLU-FM Halifax by increasing the effective antenna height and by relocating the transmitter.
2. The licensee stated that when setting up two years ago, it discovered two major problems. The first problem was that the building it was leasing would not allow it to vent out its 5,000 watt transmitter and consequently it was forced to use a 1,000 watt transmitter. The second was that its technical consultant did not provide adequate coverage maps to demonstrate that it would not be heard well in parts of Bedford and Lower Sackville, which it stated are two principle areas in its Metro Halifax market. The licensee indicated that the proposed site relocation would solve these two issues.
3. The Commission received interventions in support of this application.
4. The Commission notes that the authorized contours of the station will be expanded significantly as a result of theincrease in the effective antenna height and the relocation of the transmitter. However, the increased contour will have little to no impact on the market as the station offers a niche-type service and its original authorized contour already includes most of the core of the Halifax-Dartmouth market.
5. 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 notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
