CHHR-FM Vancouver – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Shore Media Group Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CHHR-FM Vancouver, in order to change the frequency from 104.1 MHz (channel 281C) to 104.3 MHz (channel 282C) and the authorized contours of the station by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 4,200 to 5,200 watts (maximum ERP from 8,000 to 10,000 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 600 metres). The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3 below. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. The licensee indicated that these changes are necessary due to interference from a radio station in the United States. The changes are expected to improve reception in Vancouver.

Condition prior to the implementation of the new technical parameters

3. 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. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the licensee will not be able to implement the new technical parameters approved in this decision.
