Developmental community radio station in Truro – Use of the frequency 97.9 MHz


The Commission approves the application by Truro Live Performing Arts Association for the use of frequency 97.9 MHz (channel 250VLP) for the operation of the English-language, very low-power developmental community FM radio station approved in Developmental community radio station in Truro, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2009-557, 3 September 2009 (Broadcasting Decision 2009-557). All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. There were no interventions concerning this application.


The application was filed in response to Broadcasting Decision 2009-557, in which the Commission stated that it would only issue a licence to Truro Live Performing Arts Association if it submitted an application proposing the use of an FM frequency other than 106.1 MHz (channel 291VLP) that was acceptable to both the Commission and the Department of Industry (the Department).


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.


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.


Further, 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.
