·      the number of transmitters required to transmit the service,

·      the transmitter specification number which has been allocated to each transmitter (column three),

·      the identifying number of the attachment where the technical specifications for each transmitter are described (column four).  (Each set of technical specifications referred to in the Schedules is an attachment to this determination).

·      the general area served by each transmitter (column five).
