·      The status of the service (column two) does not form part of the licence area plan decision and is included for reference only.

·      The frequency for each transmitter (column three) does not form part of the licence area plan decision and is included for reference only.

·      the service licence number which has been allocated to the service, if appropriate (column four);  N/A = Not Applicable, as the Broadcasting Services Act 1992 only requires service licences for Commercial and Community services.

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

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

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