CHNO-FM Sudbury – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. (Newcap) to change the authorized contours of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CHNO-FM Sudbury, by increasing the effective radiated power from 11,000 watts to 100,000 watts, by increasing the effective height of the antenna above average terrain to 150.2 metres and by relocating the transmitter. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3 below.
2. Newcap stated that the proposed changes are required to improve signal reception and to reduce interference due to the mountainous terrain and the present location of its antenna.

Condition prior to the implementation of the new technical parameters

3. The Commission reminds the applicant 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 applicant will not be able to implement the new technical parameters approved in this decision.
