CFIT-FM Airdrie and its transmitter CFIT-FM-1 Cochrane – Technical change – Corrections


The Commission hereby corrects the CFIT-FM Airdrie and its transmitter CFIT-FM-1 Cochrane – Technical change, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2009-124, 9 March 2009, by amending paragraphs 1 and 7 by the following:

1. The Commission received an application by Tiessen Media Inc. (Tiessen) to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CFIT-FM Airdrie in order to change the frequency of its transmitter CFIT-FM-1 Cochrane from 95.3 MHz (channel 237A1) to 91.5 MHz (channel 218A1) and to increase the effective height above average terrain from -42 metres to 135 metres. Astral Media Radio Group (Astral) filed an intervention to this application. While not opposing the application, Astral raised some concerns about the potential impact of the proposed technical change on its station CJAY-FM Calgary.

7. The Commission reminds the licensee that pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry (the Department) notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.


The Commission also adds the following paragraph, which was omitted:

8. 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.
