Application 2010-0663-5, received 20 April 2010

CIBL-FM Montréal – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by Radio communautaire francophone de Montréal inc. relating to the broadcasting licence for the French-language, type B community radio programming undertaking CIBL-FM Montréal, in order to change the authorised contours of the station by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 221 to 936 watts (maximum ERP from 293 to 2800 watts with a height of antenna above average terrain of 192.5 metres)[1]. All other technical parameters remain unchanged.

2.      The licensee indicated that it had requested these changes in order to improve the quality of the station’s signal in areas where reception is not good.

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, no licence may be issued until 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 transmitter approved in this decision.
