CRTC OKs Change For New Ottawa FM
March 26, 2010 at 6:54 AM (PT)
ASTRAL MEDIA has received CRTC approval to change the parameters of its new FM at OTTAWA by decreasing power from 45,000 to 38,000 watts and increasing antenna height from 123.5 to 161 meters above average terrain. The move allows the station to combine its signal with CHRISTIAN HIT RADIO Contemporary Christian CHRI (FAMILY RADIO)/OTTAWA on the same antenna.
The CRTC also denied ROGERS BROADCASTING LTD.'s application to add a transmitter at SALTSPRING ISLAND, BC for its AC CIOC (98.5 THE OCEAN)/VICTORIA, BC. The agency determined that the additional transmitter didn't address an economic or technical necessity.
