CBV-FM Québec and CBV-FM-7 Saint-George-de-Beauce – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language radio programming undertaking CBV-FM Québec in order to relocate the rebroadcasting transmitter CBV-FM-7 Saint-George-de-Beauce. This relocation will result in a class modification from A1 to B1 and will increase the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 84 to 640 watts (non-directional to a directional antenna, with an increase in the maximum ERP from 84 to 2,500 watts, as well as an increase in the effective height of antenna above average terrain from -6.5 to 163.6 meters). The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.

2. The CBC stated that the purpose of this technical change was to improve the French-language service La Première Chaîne.

3. The Commission reminds the licensee that pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.

4. The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 13 November 2014. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
