CFMH-FM Saint John - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Campus Radio Saint John Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CFMH-FM Saint John, authorized in New community-based campus radio station, Decision CRTC 2000-170, 19 May 2000, in order to change the frequency from 92.5 MHz (channel 223LP) to 107.3 MHz (channel 297A1), and to change the authorized contours by increasing the effective radiated power (ERP) from 50 to 250 watts, by increasing the antenna height and by relocating the transmitter.
2. In support of its application, the licensee stated that the proposed changes are in response to interference that CFMH-FM has experienced from the new radio station CFRK-FM Fredericton1, which is owned by Newcap Inc. (Newcap).
3. The licensee further noted that, during the licensing process that culminated in the licensing of CFRK-FM, the Commission noted the commitment made by Newcap to resolve any interference issue that CFMH-FM might experience following the implementation of Newcap's new station.
4. The Commission notes that the increase in power for CFMH-FM will result in a change of CFMH-FM Saint John from a low-power unprotected service to a regular Class A FM service, and that the technical changes will result in a significant increase in the authorized contours of the station.
5. The Commission received interventions in support of this application.
6. The Commission reminds the licensee 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.
