CIMT-DT Rivière-du-Loup – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by Télé Inter-Rives ltée relating to the broadcasting licence for the French-language television programming undertaking CIMT-DT Rivière-du-Loup, Quebec in order to change the technical parameters of the digital rebroadcasting transmitter CIMT-DT-6 Rivière-du-Loup by decreasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 95 watts to 90 watts, by increasing the maximum ERP from 132 to 150 watts, by decreasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 64.1 to 50.7 metres and by relocating the antenna site. The Commission did not receive any interventions in connection with this application.

2.      According to the licensee, tests made with this transitional transmitter have demonstrated that the coverage is inadequate in the lower sector of Rivière-du-Loup and Notre-Dame-du-Portage. It stated that relocating the transmitter to the same site as that used for the related stations CKRT-DT-3 Rivière-du-Loup and CFTF-DT-6 Rivière-du-Loup should resolve this problem.

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.
