CBGA-FM Matane – New transmitter in Pointe-à-la-Garde

  1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CBGA-FM Matane in order to operate a transmitter in Pointe-à-la-Garde. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. The licensee stated that it was seeking to enhance the signal of CBGA-FM, which broadcasts the programming of the ICI Radio-Canada Première French-language service, in the Pointe-à-la-Garde and Baie des Chaleurs area.
  3. The new transmitter will operate at 92.3 MHz (channel 222B1) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 1,930 watts (maximum ERP of 4,740 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 214.5 metres).
  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 (the Department) notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
  5. 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 15 July 2016. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted at least 60 days before this date.
