Application 2010-0029-9, received 13 January 2010

CJLP-FM Disraeli - Technical change

1.     The Commission approves the application by Radio Mégantic ltée to change the authorized contours of CJLP-FM Disraeli, the transmitter for the French-language radio programming undertaking CKLD-FM Thetford Mines, by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 57.2 to 114.4 watts (maximum ERP from 104 to 208 watts with an effective height of the antenna above average terrain of -0.4 meters). The Commission received interventions in support of this application. The interventions are available on the Commission's website at under “Public Proceedings.” The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3 below.

2.     The licensee stated that the proposed amendments would improve reception of CJLP-FM's signal in the primary service area. Additionally, the licensee submits that it wishes to take into account the changes that the Department will make to the domestic interference protection criteria for FM stations set out in Broadcast Procedures and Rules – Part 3: Application Procedures and Rules for FM Broadcasting Undertakings effective 1 January 2011.

3.     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. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the licensee will not be able to implement the new technical parameters approved in this decision.
