CKJF-FM QuébecTechnical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Sortir FM inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language tourist information radio programming undertaking CKJF-FM Québec, authorized in French-language FM radio station in Montmagny and transmitter in Saint-Fabien-de-Panet, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2008-224, 26 August 2008 (Broadcasting Decision 2008-224), in order to change the frequency from 90.3 MHz (channel 212LP) to 106.9 MHz (channel 295A1) and to change the authorized contours by increasing the maximum effective radiated power from 16 to 250 watts1 with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 70.6 metres.
2. The frequency change is necessary given the approval set out in Broadcasting Decision 2008-224, in which the Commission authorized Guy Simard, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated, to use the frequency 90.3 MHz in Montmagny. Further, the change in status of the station to a regular Class A1 service resulting from the power increase will permit the long-term development of CKJF-FM and a return on the investments made for the operation of the station. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
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.
