Application 2010-1840-9, received 15 December 2010

CICA-TV Toronto – Licence amendment

1.      The Commission approves the application by The Ontario Educational Communications Authority to amend the broadcasting licence for the television programming undertaking CICA-TV Toronto to add a post-transition digital rebroadcasting transmitter to serve the population of London. The Commission received a comment in connection with this application. The public record of this proceeding is available on the Commission’s website at under “Public Proceedings.”

2.      The transmitter will operate on channel 18 with an effective radiated power of 2,400 watts (non-directional antenna with an effective height of antenna above average terrain of 316 metres).

3.      The Commission reminds the licensee that, pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, the licence amendment will only be effective when the Department of Industry (the Department) notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that a broadcasting certificate will be issued.

4.      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.

5.      The transmitter must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 31 August 2011. The Commission expects the licensee to inform it in writing once the transmitter is in operation.
