CFRK-FM Fredericton – Technical changes
1. The Commission approves the application by Newcap Inc. (Newcap) to modify the technical parameters of the English-language commercial radio programming undertaking CFRK-FM Fredericton by decreasing the station’s average effective radiated power (ERP) from 93,000 to 42,000 watts (and by increasing the maximum ERP from 93,000 to 100,000 watts), by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 124.8 to 137.5 metres, by changing the radiation pattern of the antenna from non-directional to directional, and by relocating the antenna and transmitter from their current site at Hamtown Corner, New Brunswick, to Mount Hope, New Brunswick. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.
2. Newcap stated that residents in the vicinity of the Hamtown Corner transmitter site have expressed concerns over high levels of radiation from the transmitters of three different radio stations, including that for CFRK-FM, which are all located at that site. The licensee stated that relocating the transmitter for CFRK-FM to the Mount Hope transmitter site would result in a reduction of radiation to the nearby residences at Hamtown Corner.
3. 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.
