Application No.  2008-0665-6

1. Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia
Application No. 2008-0678-9
  Application by Seaside Broadcasting Organization to amend the licence of the English-language community Type B radio programming undertaking CFEP-FM Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia.
  The licensee advises that the technical parameters approved in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-389, 23 October 2007, which approved an increase in the effective radiated power from 50 watts to 1,400 watts cannot be approved by the Department of Industry due to interference with another station. Consequently, it is seeking alternate technical parameters.
  The licensee proposes to amend the licence by changing the frequency from 94.7 MHz (channel 234A) to 105.9 MHz (channel 290A).
  The licensee also proposes to change the authorized contours from those authorized in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-389, 23 October 2007, by decreasing the effective radiated power from 1,400 watts to 1,360 watts and by increasing the effective antenna height from 27 metres to 49.2 metres.

  The licensee proposes to replace in part condition of licence number 3 relating to the annual development and promotion of Canadian talent which reads as follows:

  • $10,000 to "Peace Country Idol" which is hosted by the Grande Prairie Regional College's Diploma Marketing Students.
  • $10,000 to support "Telus Country Fever", to hire Canadian musical artists who do not yet have major recording contracts.
