CBRT-DT Calgary – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) to change the authorized contours of the English-language digital television programming undertaking CBRT-DT Calgary, by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 11,800 to 253,500 watts (maximum ERP from 23,500 to 507,000 watts and an increase in the antenna’s effective height of antenna above average terrain from 276.3 to 350.8 metres). The Commission received an intervention in support of this application.

2. CBC has requested this technical change in order to provide CBRT-DT’s programming to a larger audience in the Calgary area.

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 (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 applicant will not be able to implement the technical change approved in this decision.
