Route reference: Part 1 application posted on 16 November 2012

Ottawa, 31 January 2013

Crossroads Television System
Hamilton, Ontario

Application 2012-1438-7

CITS-DT Hamilton – Technical change

1. The Commission approves the application by Crossroads Television System to change the authorized contours of the television programming undertaking CITS-DT Hamilton by increasing the average effective radiated power (ERP) from 9,500 to 221,000 watts (maximum ERP from 20,000 to 473,000 watts). The Commission received interventions in support of this application.

2. The licensee indicated that it requested this power increase in order to fully restore coverage to its licensed regional market. The licensee argued that coverage in that area has been insufficient since the digital transition occurred.

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.
