Application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation relating to the licence of the French-language FM radio programming undertaking CBF-FM Montréal.

All technical parameters of the rebroadcasting transmitters would remain unchanged.

 5. Ottawa, Ontario
Application No. 2010-0867-3

Application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation relating to the licence of the FM English-language radio programming undertaking CBO-FM Ottawa.

The licensee proposes to amend the licence by changing the frequency from 106.5 MHz (channel 293A) to 91.9 MHz (channel 220A) of its rebroadcasting transmitter CBOB-FM at Brockville, Ontario.

The licensee also proposes to change the authorized contours by modifying the antenna radiation pattern from non-directional to directional and by decreasing the average effective radiated power from 3,000 watts to 1,080 watts (maximum effective radiated power from 3,000 watts to 2,000 watts and the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 100.5 meters to 97.9 metres).

The licensee states that such a frequency change is necessary after an assessment by NAV CANADA found the 106.5MHz frequency to be unacceptable because it would cause potential interference to the GTB localizer service at the Wheeler-Sack airport in Northern New York State.

With this modification, the licensee would increase its potential listenership by 60% (from 36,950 persons to 59,133) in the 3 mV/m contour and by 62% (from 32,720 persons to 53,021) in the 0.5 mV/m contour.

The intervention must be received by the Commission and by the applicant on or before the above‑mentioned date.

The Commission cannot be held responsible for postal delays and will not notify a party whose intervention is received after the deadline date. In such a case, the intervention will not be considered by the Commission and will not be part of the public file.

Interventions will be considered by the Commission and will form part of the public record of the proceeding without further notification to intervening parties, provided the procedure set out below has been followed. Parties will be contacted only if their submissions raise procedural questions.

A true copy must be sent to the applicant, and proof that this has been done must accompany the intervention sent to the Commission.

The Commission advises those who file and serve by electronic mode to exercise caution when using e‑mail for service of documents or notification, as it may be difficult to establish that service has occurred.

Parties must ensure that, before initiating service through electronic mode, they will be able to satisfy the Commission, upon request, that service of the notification was completed.

Submissions longer than five pages should include a summary.

Each paragraph of the submission should be numbered. In addition, where the intervention is filed by electronic means, the line ***End of document*** should be entered following the last paragraph of the document, as an indication that the document has not been damaged during electronic transmission.

Interventions should clearly identify the application referred to and indicate whether parties support or oppose the application, or, if they propose changes to it, include the facts and grounds for their proposal.

 Important notice

All information that parties provide as part of this public process, except information granted confidentiality, whether sent by postal mail, facsimile, e‑mail or through the Commission’s website at www.crtc.gc.ca, becomes part of a publicly accessible file and will be posted on the Commission’s website.

This information includes personal information, such as full names, e‑mail addresses, postal/street addresses, telephone and facsimile numbers, and any other personal information parties provide.

The personal information that parties provide will be used and may be disclosed for the purpose for which the information was obtained or compiled by the Commission, or for a use consistent with that purpose.

The information that parties provide to the Commission as part of this public process is entered into an unsearchable database dedicated to this specific public process. This database is accessible only from the web page of this particular public process. As a result, a general search of the Commission’s website with the help of either its own search engine or a third‑party search engine will not provide access to the information that was provided as part of this public process.
