CIMO-FM Magog and its transmitter CIMO-FM-1 SherbrookeTechnical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Astral Media Radio Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CIMO-FM Magog in order to change the authorized contours of its rebroadcasting transmitter CIMO-FM-1 Sherbrooke by increasing the average effective radiated power from 22 to 89 watts, by increasing the effective height of the antenna above average terrain from 95 to 165.3 meters, by changing the type of antenna from non-directional to directional and by relocating the transmitter. There were no interventions concerning this application.
2. The Commission notes that this change will result in a change in the transmitter’s class from that of a low-power unprotected transmitter to that of a protected Class A transmitter.
3. The licensee stated that such changes are necessary to improve the signal quality within the transmitter’s authorized contours and to optimize its usage of the 106.9 MHz frequency.
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.
