Call for applications for AM radio stations to serve Montréal using the frequencies 690 kHz and 940 kHz - Amendment

1.  In paragraph 19 of Call for applications for AM radio stations to serve Montréal using the frequencies 690 kHz and 940 kHz, Broadcasting Notice of Consultation CRTC 2011-453, 29 July 2011 (Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2011-453), the Commission stated that it would withdraw from the public hearing any application for a broadcasting licence to operate an AM radio station in Montréal, if it is not advised by the Department of Industry, at least 20 days prior to the first day of the hearing, that the application is technically acceptable. It has become apparent to the Commission that it may not be possible for some of the applicants to submit their technical briefs by the 29 August 2011 deadline date.

2.  Accordingly, the Commission replaces paragraphs 4 and 19 of Broadcasting Notice of Consultation 2011-453 with the following:

4.   Applicants should note that their proposals will be considered as submitted. If clarifications are required, these will be addressed at the hearing to consider the applications received in response to this call. However, given the availability of the frequencies 690 kHz and 940 kHz and given the tight deadlines, the Commission notes that it is now apparent that it may not be possible for some applicants to submit their technical briefs before the deadline of 29 August 2011. Accordingly, applicants are required to submit the following documents by no later than 29 August 2011:

19.  The Commission intends to consider the applications at a public hearing. The Commission also expects applicants to submit, as soon as possible, their completed technical submissions to the Commission and the Department. The Commission recognizes that certain applications may not be confirmed as technically acceptable by the Department prior to the beginning of the hearing on 17 October 2011.

Secretary General
