CJCB Sydney – Technical change

  1. The Commission approves the application by Maritime Broadcasting System Limited to change the authorized night-time contours of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CJCB Sydney, Nova Scotia by decreasing the night-time transmitter power from 10,000 to 1,350 watts. All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
  2. According to the licensee, due to an antenna system failure, CJCB has been forced to operate from a single transmission tower and, consequently, must reduce its night-time transmitter power. The licensee added that the requested technical change will not affect the station’s ability to continue serving the local Sydney radio market as it has in the past, and will allow operational costs to be kept to a minimum.
  3. 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.
  4. The licensee must implement the technical change by no later than 28 May 2021. To request an extension, the licensee must submit a written request to the Commission at least 60 days before that date, using the form available on the Commission’s website.
