Astral Media Radio (Toronto) Inc. and 4382072 Canada Inc., partners in a general partnership carrying on business as Astral Media Radio G.P.
Selkirk, Manitoba

Application 2011-0530-5, received 22 March 2011

CFQX-FM Selkirk – Technical changes

1.      The Commission approves the application by Astral Media Radio (Toronto) Inc. and 4382072 Canada Inc., partners in a general partnership carrying on business as Astral Media Radio G.P., to relocate the transmitter for the English-language commercial FM radio programming undertaking CFQX-FM Selkirk from its current location approximately seven kilometres west of Selkirk to a new location 19 kilometres south of Selkirk, and to increase the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 138.5 metres to 147.5 metres. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission received interventions in support of this application.

2.      The licensee stated that the proposed technical changes would allow it to maintain service in the Selkirk/Interlake region while repatriating listeners lost due to signal reception problems in the south-west area of Winnipeg, Manitoba.

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.
