CHOQ-FM Toronto – Technical changes

1. The Commission approves the application by La Coopérative Radiophonique de Toronto inc. to modify the technical parameters of the French-language community radio programming undertaking CHOQ-FM Toronto by changing its licence class from A to B1, by decreasing the station’s effective radiated power (ERP) from 570 to 188 watts (maximum ERP increasing from 1,000 to 1,500 watts), by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 103 to 274.6 metres and by relocating the antenna site from North York to downtown Toronto. The Commission received joint interventions in support of this application.

2. The licensee stated that these changes were necessary to enable it to better serve the French-language population of the Greater Toronto area.

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.
