CKQV-FM Vermilion Bay and its transmitter CKQV-FM-3 Sioux Lookout – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Norwesto Communications Ltd. (Norwesto) to amend the broadcasting licence for the low-power, English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CKQV-FM Vermilion Bay, authorized in English-language FM radio station in Vermilion Bay, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2004-143, 13 April 2004, in order to change the frequency of its rebroadcasting transmitter CKQV-FM-3 Sioux Lookout from 104.5 MHz (channel 283LP) to 104.1 MHz (channel 281LP). All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. Norwesto stated that it must change CKQV-FM-3's frequency in order to eliminate the possibility of interference with its rebroadcasting transmitter CKQV-FM-1 Dryden, which operates at 104.5 MHz (channel 283A).
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
