CIWV-FM Hamilton/Burlington - Technical change
The Commission approves the application by Burlingham Communications Inc. (Burlingham) to increase the average effective radiated power of the radio programming undertaking CIWV-FM Hamilton/Burlington, from 3,600 watts to 11,390 watts, and to change the authorized contours as a result of the increase in power and an increase of the antenna height.
The licensee indicated that the proposed change would result in a significant improvement in its signal coverage and would allow CIWV-FM to better serve Hamilton, particularly the western and northern parts of the amalgamated City of Hamilton.
The Commission received seven interventions in support of 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.
This decision is to be appended to the licence. It is available in alternative format upon request, and may also be examined at the following Internet site: http://www.crtc.gc.ca
