CHOZ-FM St. John’s and its transmitter CJMY-FM Clarenville –Technical changes

1. The Commission approves the application by Newfoundland Broadcasting Company Limited to change the authorized contours of CJMY-FM Clarenville, Newfoundland and Labrador, a transmitter for the commercial English-language radio programming undertaking CHOZ-FM St. John’s. The applicant proposed to change the transmitter class from A to B1, change the antenna’s radiation pattern from non-directional to directional, increase the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 2,070 to 2,813 watts (maximum ERP from 2,070 watts to 4,700 watts), increase the effective height of the antenna above average terrain from 111 to 227.9 metres and move the transmission site. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2. The licensee stated the transmitter has reached the end of its life and must be removed. The licensee also submitted that the technical changes would improve the quality of the signal for those in the fringe areas of its existing coverage area.

3. 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.
