Application 2015-0056-2

CBQT-FM Thunder Bay and its transmitter CBQH-FM Dryden – Technical changes

  1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation relating to CBQH-FM Dryden, Ontario, a transmitter of the English-language radio programming undertaking CBQT-FM Thunder Bay, Ontario. Specifically, the licensee requested to relocate the transmitter to a new site in Dryden, and to change the transmitter’s class from C to A, decrease the effective radiated power from 100,000 to 1,300 watts, and decrease the effective height of the antenna above average terrain from 120 to 105.2 metres. CBQH-FM rebroadcasts Radio One programming originating from CBQT-FM. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
  2. The licensee stated that the existing tower is deteriorating and requires significant restorative work. It argued that its proposal, in particular moving the transmitter to a new site in Dryden, will be the most cost effective solution.
  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.
