CINU-FM TruroTechnical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Hope FM Ministries Limited (Hope FM) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CINU-FM Truro, authorized in Broadcasting Decision 2003-179, in order to change the frequency from 98.5 MHz (channel 253LP) to 106.3 MHz (channel 292LP). All other technical parameters for the undertaking remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. The licensee requested the change in frequency in order to resolve an interference issue with CKRH-FM Halifax, a French-language Type A community radio station approved in Broadcasting Decision 2006-139. The Commission notes that the use of 98.5 MHz by CKRH-FM was approved in Broadcasting Decision 2006-467.
3. In Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2009-158, the Commission indicated that the application by Hope FM was technically mutually exclusive with an application by Truro Live Performing Arts Association (Truro Live) for the use of the frequency 106.1 MHz (channel 291LP). In Broadcasting Decision 2009-557, also issued today, the Commission sets out its determinations in regard to the application by Truro Live.
4. 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.
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.
6. Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.
