Pursuant to Public Notice CRTC 1989-116 dated 17 October 1989, the Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CHCM Marystown by changing the frequency from 560 kHz to 740 kHz, and by increasing the night-time transmitter power from 5,000 watts to 10,000 watts. The Commission notes that the licensee also proposes to operate the CHCM transmitter from the site previously used by the former CBNM Marystown, using technical facilities purchased from the CBC.
The licensee has indicated that these amendments will result in improved service to southern Newfoundland.
In Decision CRTC 90-474 of today's date, the Commission also approved VOCM's application to change the frequency for CHVO Spaniard's Bay/ Harbour Grace from 850 kHz to 560 kHz. The licensee had indicated that the CHVO application was contingent upon approval of the present application.
