Application 2010-0886-3, received 27 May 2010

CBF-FM-20 St-Donat – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves an application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation relating to the French-language radio programming undertaking CBF-FM Montréal. Specifically, the licensee proposed to change CBF-FM-20 St-Donat’s authorized contours by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 5,460 to 4,370 watts (maximum ERP from 11,600 to 10,000 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain from 242.5 to 182.9 meters) and by moving the antenna to another site. The Commission did not receive any intervention in connection with this application.

2.      The licensee stated that this modification is needed because the site originally proposed for the Première chaîne in St-Donat is no longer available. Consequently, it proposed to relocate the antenna to a site on Mont Garceau.

3.      The Commission notes that the population served within the station’s 3 mV/m coutour will decrease from 12,072 to 7,528, and that the population served within the 0.5 mV/contour will decrease from 121,173 to 64,286.

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.
