Application 2010-0975-4, received 14 June 2010

CJYQ St. John’s – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. (Newcap) relating to the English-language commercial AM radio programming undertaking CJYQ St. John’s to change the authorized contours of its transmitter by decreasing the night time transmitter power from 25,000 watts to 3,500 watts, changing the antenna radiation pattern from directional to non-directional, and changing the antenna site. The daytime transmitter power will remain unchanged at 25,000 watts. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      Newcap stated that the current antenna site, approved in CJYQ St. John’s – Technical change, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2009-253, 7 May 2009, is unusable as local weather conditions have resulted in the deterioration of the antenna.

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 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.
