1. The Commission approves the application by Rogers Broadcasting Limited (Rogers) to change the authorized contours of the digital transitional television programming undertaking CHNM-DT Vancouver by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 772 watts to 4,300 watts (the maximum ERP will increase from 1,354 watts to 8,300 watts), by increasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 615 meters to 670 meters, and by relocating the antenna. There were no interventions to this application. The implementation is subject to the notification by the Department of Industry (the Department) discussed in paragraph 3 below.
2. The licensee stated that the proposed changes and the use of its own facilities will result in better signal quality for the station's Vancouver listeners.

Condition prior to the implementation of the new technical parameters

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 notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued. Therefore, in the absence of the notification by the Department, the licensee will not be able to implement the new technical parameters approved in this decision.
