CKRD-FM Red Deer – Technical change
1. The Commission approves the application by Touch Canada Broadcasting (2006) Inc., (the general partner), and Touch Canada Broadcasting Inc. (the limited partner), carrying on business as Touch Canada Broadcasting Limited Partnership to change the technical parameters of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CKRD-FM Red Deer by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 9,000 to 18,400 watts (maximum ERP from 18,000 to 38,000 watts). All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. The applicant indicated that the change would improve the quality of its signal within its coverage area.
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.
