Radio communautaire de Harrington Harbour
Mutton Bay (Baie-des-Moutons), Quebec

Application 2010-1440-7, received 23 August 2010

CFTH-FM-1 Harrington Habour – New transmitter at Mutton Bay (Baie-des-Moutons)

1.      The Commission approves the application by Radio communautaire de Harrington Harbour to amend the broadcasting licence for the French-language Type A community radio programming undertaking CFTH-FM-1 Harrington Harbour, by adding an FM transmitter at Mutton Bay. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      The new transmitter would operate on frequency 98.5 MHz (channel 253A) with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 70 watts (maximum ERP of 145 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 158 metres).

3.      Radio communautaire de Harrington Harbour stated that the addition of the new transmitter would allow it to adequately serve the populations of Mutton Bay and of La Tabatière, Quebec.

4.      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.

5.      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.

6.      The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 6 December 2012. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
