Route reference: Part 1 application posted on 7 November 2012

Ottawa, 19 February 2013

Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Brockville, Ontario

Application 2012-1399-1

CBO-FM Ottawa and its transmitter CBOB-FM Brockville – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to modify the technical parameters of CBOB-FM Brockville, Ontario, a transmitter for the English-language radio programming undertaking CBO-FM Ottawa. This transmitter, approved in CBO-FM Ottawa – New transmitter in Brockville, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2007-399, 22 November 2007, has been operating since November 2012.  

2. The CBC proposed to decrease the transmitter’s average effective radiated power (ERP) from 1,080 to 738 watts (maximum ERP from 2,000 to 1,571 watts) and to increase the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 97.9 to 151.9 meters. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

3. To justify the proposed amendment, the licensee indicated that the antenna purchased for CBOB-FM differs from the one that it originally planned to use.

4. The Commission reminds the applicant 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.
