Application 2010-0546-3, received 30 March 2010

CKVL-FM Montréal (LaSalle Borough) – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by La radio communautaire de LaSalle to change the authorized contours of the French-language Type B community radio programming undertaking CKVL-FM Montréal (LaSalle Borough) by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 250 to 110 watts (by increasing the maximum ERP from 250 to 870 watts and the effective height of antenna above average terrain from -0.5 to 40.4 metres), by changing the antenna’s radiation pattern from non-directional to directional and by relocating the studios and the transmitter site to LaSalle Borough City Hall. The Commission received a joint intervention in support of the application.

2.      The licensee stated that the new technical parameters would improve the quality of the station’s signal for listeners residing in Montréal’s LaSalle Borough, who currently experience poor reception of CKVL-FM. The licensee added that this change was necessary in order to continue operating the station.

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.
