FM station in Peterborough - Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by CTV Limited (CTV) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking (CKPT-FM) authorized in CKPT Peterborough - Conversion to FM band, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-99, 23 March 2007, in order to change the frequency from 99.3 MHz (channel 257B) to 99.7 MHz (channel 259B) and to change the authorized contours by decreasing the average effective radiated power from 5,700 watts to 3,700 watts and by decreasing the effective antenna height. The Commission notes that there will be no significant change to the station's authorized contours.
2. CTV indicated that these changes will resolve third adjacent interference with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's station CBCP-FM Peterborough, which operates at 98.7 MHz (channel 254B).
3. The Commission received an intervention in support of 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.
