CHAN-DT Vancouver and its transmitters CHAN-TV-1 Chilliwack and CHAN-TV-4 Courtenay – Licence amendments
1. The Commission approves the applications by Shaw Television Limited Partnership to amend the broadcasting licence for the English-language conventional television programming undertaking CHAN-DT Vancouver in order to add digital transmitters to replace its existing analog transmitters CHAN-TV-1 Chilliwack and CHAN-TV-4 Courtenay. The Commission did not receive any interventions regarding these applications.
2. The new Chilliwack transmitter will operate on channel 31 with an average effective radiated power (ERP) of 144 watts (maximum ERP of 428 watts with an effective height of antenna above average terrain (EHAAT) of 285.6 meters).
3. The new Courtenay transmitter will operate on channel 25 with an average ERP of 2,350 watts (maximum ERP of 4,450 watts with an EHAAT of 380.5 meters).
4. The Commission reminds the licensee that pursuant to section 22(1) of the Broadcasting Act, these authorities will only be effective when the Department of Industry notifies the Commission that its technical requirements have been met and that broadcasting certificates will be issued.
5. The transmitters must be operational at the earliest possible date and in any event no later than 24 months from the date of this decision, unless a request for an extension of time is approved by the Commission before 9 October 2015. In order to ensure that such a request is processed in a timely manner, it should be submitted in writing at least 60 days before that date.
Public service announcements
6. The Commission expects the licensee to broadcast public service announcements and to inform viewers of the existence of the new transmitters by way of its website in a manner consistent with the requirements set out in sections 3 and 4 of the appendix to Regulations for the digital television transition, Broadcasting Regulatory Policy CRTC 2011-198, 18 March 2011. Furthermore, the Commission expects the licensee to do this for a period of at least three months from the day these authorities are issued and before the licensee ceases to broadcast in analog or changes channels, whichever is sooner.
