Application 2011-0500-0, received 17 March 2011

CFOX-FM Vancouver – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by Corus Radio Company to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CFOX-FM Vancouver to change the technical parameters of its CFOX-FM transmitter by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 35,200 to 51,000 watts (maximum ERP from 75,000 to 100,000 watts), by decreasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 686 to 386.4 metres and by relocating its transmitter. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The licensee requested this amendment as a result of ongoing technical problems and difficulties with the current transmitter site.

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 of Industry (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 applicant will not be able to implement the technical change approved in this decision.

Secretary General
