CKAG-FM Pikogan – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Société de communication Ikito Pikogan ltée to change the authorized contours of the Native Type B FM radio programming undertaking CKAG-FM Pikogan, by increasing the effective radiated power from 50 watts to 3,738 watts and by relocating the antenna (this relocation will increase the effective height of the antenna above average terrain from 15 to 38.43 metres). There were no interventions to this application.
2. The licensee indicated that the change in CKAG-FM's authorized contours and the relocation of the antenna will allow members of the Abitibiwinni First Nation living outside the station's current service area to receive its programming.
3. The Commission notes that CKAG-FM is currently licensed as a low-power unprotected FM service. The present technical change modifies its operating class to one with protected status under the rules of the Department of Industry (the Department).
4. 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.
