CKOY-FM Sherbrooke – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by 591991 B.C. Ltd. to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language commercial radio programming undertaking CKOY-FM Sherbrooke, Quebec, by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 1,300 to 9,100 watts and the maximum ERP from 1,300  to 50,000 watts, by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 173 to 190.2 metres, by replacing its omni-directional antenna with a directional antenna, and by relocating the transmitter and the antenna site. The Commission received interventions in support of this application. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3 below.
2. The licensee stated that the proposed changes would improve coverage of Sherbrooke and its surrounding area by CKOY-FM's signal. The licensee also indicated that CKOY-FM's antenna, once relocated, will occupy the same site as the antenna for CHLT-FM Sherbrooke, which is also owned by the licensee, and that the proposed relocation will allow the licensee to consolidate the facilities for both of its Sherbrooke stations.

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.
