Decision CRTC 2001-96

Ottawa, 21 February 2001

RE: APPROVAL -- Application No.: (2001-0011-5)
Cole Harbour Community Radio Society
CHCN-FM - Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia
Relocation of transmitter and decrease in power

Dear Mr. Olds:

This is further to your application of November 6, 2000, received at the Commission on January 5, 2001, for technical amendments to CHCN-FM Cole Harbour's broadcasting licence.

The Commission approves the application to amend the broadcasting licence for CHCN-FM Cole Harbour by relocating its transmitter to the MTT Cellular Tower in Preston, Nova Scotia and decreasing the effective radiated power from 45 watts to 20 watts.

The Commission notes that this change is to address the concerns expressed by local homeowners about the initial location of the radio towers.

The Commission authorizes the licensee to operate the undertaking on the basis of the contours and particulars resulting from the above-mentioned change.

The Department of Industry has advised the Commission that this application is conditionally technically acceptable. The Department will only issue a broadcasting certificate once it has determined that the proposed technical parameters will not create any unacceptable interference with aeronautical NAV/COM services.

In accordance with section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the above-mentioned amendment will only be valid when the Department of Industry certifies to the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate has been or will be issued.

This decision is to be appended to the licence.

Yours sincerely,

Ursula Menke
Secretary General
