Application 2012-1588-0

CFTV-DT Leamington – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Southshore Broadcasting Inc. to change the authorized contours of the low-power, primarily English-language community-based television station CFTV-DT Leamington by relocating the antenna and transmitter site, increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 365 to 587 watts (maximum ERP from 621 to 1,000 watts) and decreasing the effective height of antenna above average terrain from 56 to 27 metres.1 All other technical parameters will remain unchanged. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding this application.

2. In CFTV-TV Leamington – Licence amendment, Broadcasting Decision CRTC 2012-446, 17 August 2012, the Commission approved an application by the licensee to convert from analog to digital transmission. The licensee explained that programming from the studio to the new transmitter was to be transmitted over a fibre-optic link, which would replace the current microwave link for the analog program feed. The licensee noted that it had undertaken this change in a cost-effective manner by bartering for both the fibre link from an affiliated independent telco in the area and also the land use for the new transmission site.

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.
