Application 2010-0509-1, received 24 March 2010

CFSI-FM Salt Spring Island – Technical change  

1.      The Commission approves the application by Salt Spring Island Radio Corporation to change the authorized contours for the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CFSI-FM Salt Spring Island by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 330 to 130 watts (maximum ERP from 970 to 700 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 215.6 metres). The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The Commission notes that the new technical parameters reflect those established following construction of the transmission facilities and that the station’s coverage area will be significantly reduced as a result of this technical change.

Condition prior to the implementation of the new technical parameters

3.      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. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the licensee will not be able to implement the new technical parameters approved in this decision.
