  Application 2009-1637-2, received 1 December 2009

CFGT-FM Alma – Technical change

1. The Commission approves an application by Groupe Radio Antenne 6 inc. regarding the new French-language, commercial FM radio programming undertaking CFGT-FM Alma, Quebec, authorized in CFGT Alma – Conversion to FM band and CHRL-FM Roberval – Technical change, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2009-507, 20 August 2009 (Broadcasting Decision 2009-507). The applicant proposed to use frequency 104.5 MHz (channel 283B) instead of 97.7 MHz (channel 249B) as approved in Broadcasting Decision 2009-507. All other technical parameters remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. The applicant indicated that this change has become necessary due to constraints linked to frequency 97.7 MHz in the Alma radio market as well as problems that use of this frequency may cause.
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 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.
