CKXG-FM Grand Falls and its transmitter CKXG-FM-1 Grand Falls – Technical changes

1.      The Commission approves an application by Newcap Inc. (Newcap) to change the technical parameters of CKXG-FM-1 Grand Falls, the rebroadcasting transmitter of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CKXG-FM Grand Falls, by increasing the effective radiated power from 40 watts to 50 watts, by decreasing the antenna’s effective height above average terrain from 66 metres to 47.3 metres, and by relocating the transmitter from Grand Falls to Lewisporte, Newfoundland and Labrador. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      Newcap stated that the proposed technical changes are necessary to improve service to the population of Lewisporte.

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.
