CFGX-FM Sarnia - Technical change
The Commission approves the application by Blackburn Radio Inc. to change the authorized contours of the commercial English-language radio programming undertaking CFGX-FM Sarnia by increasing the effective radiated power from 26,000 watts to an average effective radiated power of 27,000 watts and by increasing the effective antenna height.
The licensee indicated that the proposed technical change will improve the station's signal in the core community of Sarnia and will also address the coverage issues experienced by this growing community.
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.
This decision is to be appended to the licence. It is available in alternative format upon request and may also be examined in PDF format or in HTML at the following Internet site: www.crtc.gc.ca.
