Application 2011-0056-0, received 17 January 2011

CHHA Toronto – Technical amendment

1.      The Commission approves the application by San Lorenzo Latin American Community Centre to amend the broadcasting licence for the Type B community AM radio programming undertaking CHHA Toronto to change the authorized contours by modifying the antenna radiation pattern from non-directional to directional and by modifying its transmitter power from 10,000 watts day-time and 1,000 watts night-time to 6,250 watts day- and night-time.

2.      The Commission received interventions in support of this application. The public record for this proceeding is available on the Commission’s website at under “Public Proceedings.”

3.      The licensee stated that such a change in transmitter power would allow the station to regain lost listenership resulting from the night-time power reduction and that the change in antenna radiation pattern would protect other AM stations from skywave interference.

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 of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.

Secretary General
