CHPK-FM Calgary – Technical changes
1. The Commission approves the application by Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Ltd. (the general partner) and Jim Pattison Industries Ltd. (the limited partner), carrying on business as Jim Pattison Broadcast Group Limited Partnership, to change the authorized contours of the radio programming undertaking CHPK-FM Calgary by relocating the transmitter, decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 36,000 to 30,000 watts (maximum ERP unchanged at 100,000 watts) and increasing the antenna’s effective height above average terrain from 180.3 to 272.9 metres. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.
2. The licensee stated that the relocation of its transmitter from a Bell Media tower to a Harvard-owned tower would mitigate reception issues caused by multipath propagation while resulting in similar coverage.
3. The Commission notes that this undertaking has not yet launched as it was never implemented at the Bell Media site.
4. Further, the Commission reminds the licensee that pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, this authority will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.
*This decision is to be appended to the licence.
