Application 2010-0501-7, received 23 March 2010

CHPB-FM Cochrane - Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by The Haliburton Broadcasting Group Inc. relating to the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CHPB-FM Cochrane. Specifically, the licensee requested a change to CHPB-FM’s technical parameters in order to relocate the broadcasting transmitter to another site. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The Commission notes that the effective height of the antenna above average terrain will decrease from 36 metres to 13.7 metres,[1] whereas other technical parameters will remain unchanged. In addition, the population served within the station’s 3 mV/m contour will decrease from 4,590 to 3,980, and the population served within the station’s 0.5 mV/m contour will decrease from 5,100 to 4,820.

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.
