CBVT-TV Québec – Technical change

1.      The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) relating the broadcasting licence for the French-language television programming undertaking CBVT-TV Québec in order to change the technical parameters of its digital transmitter CBVT-DT Québec.

2.      The transmitter channel will change from 12 to 25. The average effective radiated power (ERP) of the transmitter will increase from 1,020 to 126,100 watts (maximum ERP from 2,450 to 291,000 watts and effective height of antenna above average terrain from 500.1 to 515.4 metres.)

3.      The Commission reminds the CBC that it has committed to inform viewers of the channel change and the need to do a new channel scan on their digital tuners through its local news bulletins broadcast on television and radio.

4.      Further, 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.
