                This Notice is the Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence Variation Notice 2009 (No. 1).

2              Commencement

                This Notice commences on the day after it is registered.

3              Variation of Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence 2000

                Schedule 1 varies the Radiocommunications (Low Interference Potential Devices) Class Licence 2000.


Schedule 1        Variations

(section 3)

  

[1]           Section 3A, after definition of coverage area

insert

DAB means digital audio broadcasting.

[2]           Section 3A, after definition of device compliance day

insert

ERP means effective radiated power.

[3]           Schedule 1, items 22 and 22A

substitute

 

22

Wireless audio transmitters

174–230

3 mW

(~1.82 mW ERP)

 

1.  Emission must be frequency modulated and have a maximum bandwidth of 330 kHz.

2.  Transmission in a TV channel must not originate in the licence area of a TV broadcasting station (including a repeater or translator station) operating in the same channel.

 

 

 

 

3.  When transmitting in an unused TV channel, and in the coverage area of a TV broadcasting station (including a repeater or translator station) operating in an adjacent TV channel, the channel centre frequency of the wireless audio transmitter must be at least 200 kHz above the upper edge of the adjacent TV channel, or 400 kHz below the lower edge of the adjacent TV channel.

22A

Wireless audio transmitters

520–820

100 mW

(~60.95 mW ERP)

 

1.  Emission must be frequency modulated and have a maximum bandwidth of 330 kHz.

2.  Transmission in a broadcasting services bands channel must not originate in the coverage area of a broadcasting station or a datacasting service station (including a repeater or translator station) operating in the same channel.

 

 

 

 

3.  The origin of a transmission in a broadcasting services bands channel must be such that the resulting field strength at the nearest boundary of the coverage area of a broadcasting station or a datacasting service station using the channel does not exceed 30 dBuV/m.

 

 

 

 

4.  When transmitting in an unused broadcasting services bands channel, and in the coverage area of a broadcasting station or a datacasting service station (including a repeater or translator station) operating in an adjacent channel, the channel centre frequency of the wireless audio transmitter must be at least 400 kHz above the upper edge of the adjacent channel, or 400 kHz below the lower edge of the adjacent channel.
