CIRA-FM Montréal - New transmitter at Rimouski


The Commission approves the application by Radio Ville-Marie to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language specialty FM radio programming undertaking CIRA-FM Montréal in order to operate a transmitter at Rimouski.


The new transmitter will operate at 104.1 MHz (channel 281A1) with an average effective radiated power of 111.5 watts.


The licensee indicated that the addition of the transmitter at Rimouski is necessary in order to respond to the needs of the population.


The Commission received interventions in support of this application.


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.


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.


The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 26 September 2010. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
