Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-547

  Ottawa, 14 December 2004
  Christian Hit Radio Inc.
Ottawa and Cornwall, Ontario
  Application 2004-0328-8
Broadcasting Public Notice CRTC 2004-65

CHRI-FM Ottawa - New transmitter in Cornwall

1.

The Commission approves the application by Christian Hit Radio Inc. (Christian Hit Radio) to amend the broadcasting licence for the radio programming undertaking CHRI-FM Ottawa, in order to operate a low-power transmitter in Cornwall.

2.

The new transmitter will operate at 88.1 MHz (channel 201LP) with an effective radiated power of 50 watts.

3.

The Commission received 135 interventions in connection with this application, including 134 expressing support. One intervention offered general comments about the signal strength and programming of CHRI-FM.

4.

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.

5.

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.

6.

Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.

7.

The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 14 December 2006. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
