Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-168

  Ottawa, 12 August 2008
  Radio CFXU Club
Antigonish, Nova Scotia
  Application 2008-0954-3, received 14 July 2008
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2008-65

CFXU-FM Antigonish - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Radio CFXU Club (the Club) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language, low-power community-based campus FM radio programming undertaking CFXU-FM Antigonish in order to change the frequency from 92.5 MHz (channel 223LP) to 93.3 MHz (channel 227LP). CFXU-FM operates as a low-power unprotected service with an effective radiated power of 50 watts. The licensee did not propose any changes in CFXU-FM's authorized contours or in any other technical parameter under which it currently operates.
2. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
3. In Broadcasting Decision 2007-347, the Commission approved an application by La Coopérative Radio Chéticamp Limitée for the use of 92.5 MHz (channel 223A1) to operate a transmitter of CKJM-FM Chéticamp in Pomquet, Nova Scotia. As a result of this decision, the Department of Industry (the Department) advised the Club that, given CFXU-FM's status as a low-power unprotected station, it must vacate 92.5 MHz (channel 223LP) to reduce the possibility of interference with the Pomquet transmitter. Consequently, the Club filed the present application to ensure continuity of its service.


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.


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.


Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.
