Application 2014-0200-0

CHYQ-FM Nipissing – Technical change

  1. The Commission approves the application by Paul Lefebvre, on behalf of a corporation to be incorporated, to change the authorized contours of CHYQ‑FM Nipissing, Ontario, by changing the radiation pattern of the antenna from directional to non-directional, by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) of the transmitter from 47,100 to 6,500 watts (maximum ERP from 77,600 to 6,500 watts) and by decreasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 136.2 to 45.7 meters. The station’s class will change from C1 to B1. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. The licensee indicated that these changes were necessary because he had to change the transmission site and the antenna on the new site did not provide the same power as that originally approved in French-language FM radio station in Nipissing, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2011-2, 6 January 2011 (Broadcasting Decision 2011-2).
  3. The Commission reminds the licensee that CHYQ-FM must be in operation at the latest by 6 January 2015, as indicated in the Commission letter dated 15 November 2013 approving the licensee’s second request to extend the deadline to commence operations of the transmitter approved in Broadcasting Decision 2011-2.
  4. The Commission also 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.
