  Application 2007-1462-7, received 15 October 2007
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2007-137

CBR and its transmitter CBR-1-FM Calgary - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to change the authorized contours of its transmitter CBR-1-FM Calgary, by increasing the effective radiated power (ERP) from 1,100 watts to an average ERP of 2,800 watts and by decreasing the antenna height.
2. The CBC submitted that shortly after CBR-1-FM became operational, it received a number of complaints, mostly about poor reception in apartment buildings, from residents of downtown Calgary. According to the CBC, the proposed changes will improve the signal reception in the city core.
3. The Commission received an intervention in support of this application.
4. 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.
