New FM commercial radio station in Peterborough – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Pineridge Broadcasting Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the new English-language commercial FM radio programming undertaking in Peterborough, Ontario authorized in Licensing of new radio stations to serve Peterborough and the city of Kawartha Lakes, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-98, 8 May 2008, by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 13,000 to 2,100 watts (maximum ERP of 7,000 watts), by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 150 to 233 metres and by relocating the transmitter to another site situated approximately 25 kilometres to the south and closer to Peterborough. There were no interventions to this application.
2. The licensee stated that the population within the station's 3mV/m contour will be reduced from 123,354 to 111,808 people and the population within the station's 0.5mV/m contour will be reduced from 285,253 to 254,822 people. It also stated that all of these changes are necessary because they will allow the station to provide a more reliable signal to listeners in its core market.
3. The Department of Industry (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.
4. 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.
