Application 2014-0286-7

CKAU-FM Maliotenam – Technical changes

  1. The Commission approves the application by Corporation de Radio Kushapetsheken Apetuamiss Uashat (Radio KAU) to change the authorized contours of the Type B Native radio programming undertaking CKAU-FM Maliotenam by increasing the average effective radiated power from 50 to 6,000 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of Antenna above average terrain increasing from 21 to 65 meters). The increase in power will result in a change to the station’s status from that of a low-power unprotected station to that of a protected Class A station. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. The licensee stated that the technical change is needed to increase the quality of its signal and encompass the members of the Innu community in Uashat in its service area. The licensee noted that the proposed changes would result in Sept-Îles (Québec) also being included in the service area since it is located between Maliotenam to the east and Uashat to the west.
  3. The Commission notes that the assignment of 104.5 MHz as a protected frequency to CKAU-FM will have only a limited impact on the availability of frequencies in the Sept-Îles, radio market. Several frequencies remain available in that market.
  4. 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.
