CIRH-FM Halifax – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Jack McGaw Consulting Incorporated to change the authorized contours of the English-language tourist information radio programming undertaking CIRH-FM Halifax by decreasing the effective radiated power from 560 watts to 355 watts. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. The applicant indicated that this change is necessary after it decided to use its existing antenna rather than to purchase a new antenna to implement the technical parameters approved in CIRH-FM Halifax – Technical changes, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-50, 28 February 2008.
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.
