CHSB-FM Bedford - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Bedford Baptist Church to amend the broadcasting licence for the low-power, English-language religious radio programming undertaking CHSB-FM Bedford in order to change the frequency from 89.1 MHz (channel 206LP) to 99.3 MHz (channel 257LP). The licensee did not propose to change CHSB-FM's authorized contours or any other technical parameter under which it currently operates.
2. In English-language FM radio station in Kentville, Broadcasting Decision CRTC
2007-221, 6 July 2007, the Commission approved an application by Newcap Inc. for the use of 89.3 MHz (channel 207C1) to operate a new commercial radio station in Kentville, Nova Scotia. Bedford Baptist Church filed the present application to reduce the possibility of interference with the new commercial radio station.
3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
4. 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.
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 notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
6. 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.
