Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-448

  Ottawa, 8 October 2004
  Loyalist College Radio
Belleville, Ontario
  Application 2003-1907-1
Public Hearing in the National Capital Region
9 August 2004

CJLX-FM Belleville - Technical changes

1. The Commission approves the application by Loyalist College Radio to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CJLX-FM Belleville, in order to change the frequency from 92.3 MHz (channel 222LP) to 91.3 MHz (channel 217B1) and to change the authorized contours by increasing the effective radiated power from 50 watts to 3,400 watts.
2. The change to the authorized contours results from a relocation of the transmitter as well as a significant increase of the effective antenna height and radiated power. The licensee indicated that the technical amendments will enable it to provide a better quality signal to listeners in Belleville and surrounding area.
3. The Commission received twelve interventions in support of this application.
4. As a result of the technical amendments approved in this decision, CJLX-FM's status will change from that of a low-power unprotected service to a protected class B1 FM station.
5. 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.
6. 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.
