CKXG-FM Grand Falls – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. to change the authorized contours of the radio programming undertaking CKXG-FM Grand Falls, Newfoundland and Labrador by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 24,000 to 17,000 watts, increasing the maximum ERP from 24,000 to 36,000 watts, decreasing the antenna’s effective height above average terrain from 236.7 to 96.6 metres and relocating the antenna site. The Commission did not receive any interventions concerning this application.

2.      The licensee stated that this change was necessary to improve the service to the people of Grand Falls and nearby communities and to consolidate its transmitter facilities at its transmitter site in Grand Falls.

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.
