Summerside, Prince Edward Island

Application 2010-0712-0, received 27 April 2010

CIOG-FM Charlottetown and its transmitter CIOG-FM-1 Summerside – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by International Harvesters for Christ Evangelistic Association Inc. to amend the broadcasting licence for the low-power English-language radio programming undertaking CIOG-FM Charlottetown in order to change the frequency of its rebroadcasting transmitter CIOG-FM-1 Summerside from 91.1 MHz (channel 216LP) to 92.5 MHz (channel 223LP). All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The licensee stated that this change is necessary because the 91.1 MHz frequency was not protected and has been granted to another FM radio programming undertaking in CKQK-FM Charlottetown – New transmitters at Elmira and St. Edward, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2009-17, 19 January 2009.

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, the licence amendment will not be in effect until the Department notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate has been issued.

5.      Given that the technical parameters approved in this decision are for a low-power unprotected FM service, the Commission also reminds the licensee that it will have to select another frequency if the Department so requires.
