CKJM-FM Chéticamp – Addition of a rebroadcasting transmitter in Sydney

1. The Commission approves an application by La Coopérative Chéticamp Limitée to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language community radio programming undertaking CKJM-FM Chéticamp, Nova Scotia, to add a rebroadcasting transmitter in Sydney. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.

2. The new transmitter will operate at 97,5 MHz (channel 248A) with an average effective radiated power of 830 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of -6.5 metres).

3. The licensee indicated that it wished to implement the rebroadcasting transmitter to address a demand by Sydney’s francophone population, which is only served by one French-language service, that of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

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.

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 17 February 2016. To ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
