Application 2010-1239-3, received 6 August 2010

CHLK-FM Perth – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by Perth FM Radio Inc. (Perth FM) to change the authorized contours of its English-language commercial FM radio programming undertaking CHLK-FM Perth by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 700 to 2,800 watts (maximum ERP from 1,350 to 5,400 watts with an average height of antenna above average terrain of 91.5 metres). The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      Perth FM requested this technical change due to complaints of weak or inconsistent reception of its signal from communities inside its authorized service contours such as Lanark, Westport, McDonalds Corners, Maberly, Elgin and Toledo.

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.
