CJRG-FM Gaspé – Licence amendment

1.      The Commission approves the application by Radio Gaspésie inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language community radio programming undertaking CJRG-FM Gaspé to add three FM rebroadcasting transmitters at Grande-Vallée, Petite-Vallée and Cloridorme. The Commission received a comment in connection with this application. The public record of this proceeding is available on the Commission’s website at under “Public Proceedings.”

2.      The Grande-Vallée rebroadcasting transmitter will operate at 98.5 MHz (channel 253A1) with an effective radiated power (ERP) of 250 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain (EHAAT) of -111.3 metres).

3.      The Petite-Vallée rebroadcasting transmitter will operate at 99.9 MHz (channel 260A1) with an ERP of 250 watts (non-directional antenna with an EHAAT of -114.2 metres).

4.      The Cloridorme rebroadcasting transmitter will operate at 98.9 MHz (channel 255A1) with an ERP of 250 watts (non-directional antenna with an EHAAT of -85.4 metres).

5.      The licensee stated that these rebroadcasting transmitters are necessary due to the mountainous topography, which prevents these municipalities from receiving the signal of CJRG-FM.

6.      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.

7.      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.

8.      The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 3 March 2013. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
