Definition of Local Signal and Distant Signal Regulations

SOR/89-254

INTERPRETATION

Section 1.  

In these Regulations, area of transmission means

LOCAL SIGNAL AND DISTANT SIGNAL

Section 2.  

(1) For the purposes of subsection 31(2) of the Copyright Act, local signal means one of the following:

(2) For the purposes of subsection 31(2) of the Copyright Act, distant signal means a signal that is not a local signal.

SCHEDULE – METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE PREDICTED 0.5áMILLIVOLT PER METRE (MV/M) CONTOUR OF TERRESTRIAL F.M. RADIO STATIONS AND THE PREDICTED GRADEáB CONTOUR OF TERRESTRIAL TELEVISION STATIONS (Section 1)

1. HEIGHT OF ANTENNA ABOVE AVERAGE TERRAIN (HAAT)

The height of an antenna above average terrain shall be determined on a topographical map by

2. PREDICTED CONTOURS

(1) For F.M. radio stations, the predicted contour is defined by a field strength of 0.5 mV/m.

(2) For television stations, depending on the channel involved, the predicted Grade B contour is defined by the following field strength:

(3) The HAAT determined in accordance with section 1 shall be ascertained for each radial and the effective radiated power (ERP) shall be ascertained in the plane of maximum radiation (in the case of directional antennas, the ERP value in the direction of each radial shall be used).

(4) The appropriate F(50,50) propagation curves (Tables I to III) shall be used with the HAAT and the ERP ascertained in accordance with subsection (3) to determine the distance from the transmitting site to the contour point on each radial.

(5) The contour points determined under subsection (4) shall be joined by a smooth curve to obtain the contour.

Note: The 40 dB line is the reference line for an effective radiated power (ERP) of 1 kW.
