Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2003-470

  Ottawa, 19 September 2003
  Global Communications Limited
Winnipeg, Manitoba
  Application 2003-0248-0
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2003-39
23 July 2003

CJZZ-FM Winnipeg - Technical change


The Commission approves the application by Global Communications Limited (Global) to decrease the effective radiated power (ERP) of the radio programming undertaking CJZZ-FM Winnipeg1, from 100,000 watts to 63,700 watts and to change the authorized contours. The change in authorized contours is a result of the decrease in the ERP and the relocation of the transmitter.


Originally, Global planned to broadcast from a site in Starbuck, Manitoba. Global stated, however, that this site experiences overlapping noise which would have a detrimental effect on the quality of the station's signal. To remedy this problem, Global plans to place its transmitter on a tower owned by Rogers Communications Inc. and located about 27 kilometres east of the Starbuck site. Global stated that the relocation of the transmitter will have a minimal impact on the size of station's principal market.


The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.


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


The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met, and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
