21. Halifax, Nova Scotia
Application No. 2007-0198-9
  Application by CTV Limited to convert radio station CJCH Halifax from the AM band to the FM band.
  The new station would operate on frequency 101.3 MHz (channel 267C1) with an effective radiated power of 100,000 watts (non-directional antenna/antenna height of 160.1 metres).
  The proposed station would maintain its current oldies music format.
  Approval of this application will see the licensee exceed the ownership limits for commercial radio licensees as set out in Public Notice CRTC 1998-41, Commercial Radio Policy 1998. Under the policy, in markets with 8 commercials stations or more, operating in a given language, such as Halifax, a person may be permitted to own or control as many as 2 FM stations in the same language. In the case of CHUM Limited, approval of its CJCH Halifax conversion application will see the licensee own the new FM along with its existing Halifax commercial radio holdings CIOO-FM and 50% of CKUL-FM.
  CHUM has indicated that in the event that the Commission approves its application to convert CJCH from the AM to the FM band, it will divest its interest in CKUL-FM so as to comply with the Commission's common ownership policy.
  The applicant is requesting permission to simulcast the programming of the new FM station on CJCH for a period of 3 months from the date of implementation of the new station.
  The applicant is also requesting, pursuant to sections 9(1)(e) and 24(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the revocation of the licence of CJCH effective at the end of the simulcast period.
  This application requires the issuance of a new licence.
  The Commission may withdraw this application from the public hearing if it is not advised by the Department of Industry, at least twenty days prior to the hearing, that the application is technically acceptable.

Application No. 2007-0509-8
  Application by Maritime Broadcasting System Limited (MBS) for the use of frequency 92.9 MHz (channel 225C1) with an average effective radiated power of 23,800 watts (maximum effective radiated power of 65,000 watts/antenna height of 159 metres) for the operation of the FM undertaking at Windsor in Nova Scotia, approved in Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2006-644, 27 November 2006 (Decision 2006-644).
  In Decision 2006-644, CFAB Windsor - Conversion to FM band, the Commission approved in part an application by MBS to operate a new English-language FM radio programming undertaking in Windsor. However, the Commission did not approve the proposed frequency 92.9 MHz (channel 225C1) with an average effective radiated power of 47,000 watts.
  The present application is filed in response to Decision CRTC 2006-644 in which the Commission stated that it would only issue a licence to MBS if it submitted an application proposing the use of another FM frequency and technical parameters that are acceptable to both the Commission and the Department of Industry.
  The applicant has requested an exemption to the Commission's common ownership policy (the policy). Specifically, approval of this application will see the licensee exceed the ownership limits for commercial radio licensees as set out in Public Notice CRTC 1998-41, Commercial Radio Policy 1998 (the policy). Under the policy, "in markets with less than eight commercials stations operating in a given language, a person may be permitted to own or control as many as three stations operating in that language, with a maximum of two stations in any one frequency band. In markets with eight commercials stations or more operating in a given language, a person may be permitted to own or control as many as two AM and two FM stations in that language." In the case of MBS, approval of these technical parameters will see the new Windsor FM station overlap the 3 mV/m contours of CKEN-FM and CKWM-FM, both serving Kentville. It would also see the proposed station overlap the 3 mV/m contours of CHFX-FM and CHNS-FM1, both serving Halifax.
