1 Name of Plan

  This Plan is the Television Licence Area Plan (Regional Queensland) 2012.

2 Commencement

  This Plan comes into force on the day after the end of the simulcast period for the Regional Queensland TV1 licence area.

Note  Subparagraph 6(3)(c)(iia) of Schedule 4 to the Act provides that the simulcast period for a regional licence area should run until 31 December 2013, or for such other period as is determined by the Minister under subclause 6A(2) of Schedule 4 to the Act.

3 Definitions

  In this Plan:

ACMA means the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

Act means the Broadcasting Services Act 1992.

commercial television broadcasting licensee means the licensee of a commercial television broadcasting licence.

ERP means effective radiated power.

national television broadcasting service has the same meaning as in clause 2 of Schedule 4 to the Act.

Regional Queensland TV1 licence area means the area described in Attachment 1.

simulcast period has the same meaning as in clause 2 of Schedule 4 to the Act.

television broadcasting service has the same meaning as in section 26 of the Act.

transmitter licence has the same meaning as in section 5 of the Radiocommunications  Act 1992.

Note     Terms and expressions used in this Plan have the meaning given by section 6 of the Act. For example:

 commercial television broadcasting licence.

4 Specification of channels to be available in particular areas within the Regional Queensland TV1 licence area

(1)   Subject to subsection (2), each channel specified in column 1 of an item in a table in a Schedule to this Plan is available, in the area in column 7, to provide television broadcasting services.

(2)   If a date is specified in column 3 of an item in a table in a Schedule to this Plan, the channel specified in column 1 of the item is not available in the area in column 7 to provide television broadcasting services after that date.

Note 1 A channel may be specified to be available only for a limited period in order to allow a broadcaster to swap channels on which it transmits services.

Note 2 Although a channel is specified to be available for all parts of a licence area, a particular broadcaster may only be authorised to use that channel in one part of a licence area.

Example Channel 28 may be specified to be available for all parts of a licence area.  Channel 28 may be allotted to Broadcaster A and Broadcaster B.  The ACMA may issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 28 to Broadcaster A in one part of the licence area (Part A), and issue a transmitter licence for the use of a different channel to the same broadcaster in another part of the licence area (Part B).  The ACMA may issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 28 to Broadcaster B in Part B.  Broadcaster A will not be entitled to transmit on channel 28 in Part B, as the broadcaster will not have a transmitter licence authorising such a transmission.

5 Allotment of channels to commercial television broadcasting licensees – Schedule 1

  Allotment of channels to commercial television broadcasting licensees

(1)   Each channel specified in column 1 of an item in a table in Schedule 1 is allotted to the commercial television broadcasting licensee of the licence specified for the table for use in the area in column 7, from the date (if any) specified in column 2 until the date (if any) specified in column 3.

(2)   If no date is specified in column 2 for an item in a table in Schedule 1, the channel specified in column 1 of the item is allotted to the commercial television broadcasting licensee of the licence specified for the table from the day on which this Plan comes into force.

(3)   If no licensee is specified for a table in Schedule 1, the ACMA may allot the channel specified in column 1 of an item in the table to the commercial television broadcasting licensee of a commercial television broadcasting licence for the licence area specified for the table, for use in the area in column 7.

Note  If the ACMA has not allotted a channel specified in the table, the ACMA may make the channel available for use in an area by a commercial television broadcasting licensee, a national broadcaster or any other person by making a determination under section 34 of the Act and issuing a licence under section 100 of the Radiocommunications Act 1992.

Note 1  If no date is specified in column 2 of an item, the allotment commences on the day on which this Plan comes into force.  See subsection 5(2).  If no date is specified in column 3 of an item, the allotment is continuing.

Note 2  Column 7 describes the area in which a channel is allotted for use in general terms.  The actual parameters of use of a channel will be determined by the conditions of the transmitter licence issued under the Radiocommunications Act 1992.

Note 3  Column 8 is included for information only.  “Transmitter specification number” refers to the identification number used by the ACMA for identifying particular transmitters.

Note 4  In some circumstances, a person may be permitted to transmit on a channel at an ERP higher than that determined in column 4.  See subsection 5(5).

Note 5  The one channel may be allotted to two or more different broadcasters, for use in different parts of the one licence area; the ACMA may issue a transmitter licence to one broadcaster authorising the use of the channel in one part of the licence area, and issue transmitter licences to other broadcasters authorising the use of the channel in different parts of the licence area.

Example The ACMA may issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 8 to a broadcaster in the one part of the licence area (Part A), and issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 8 to another broadcaster in a different part of the licence area (Part B).  Because of this, the first broadcaster can only use channel 8 in Part A of the licence area, and the second broadcaster can only use channel 8 in Part B of the licence area.

Note 1  If no date is specified in column 2 of an item, the allotment commences on the day on which this Plan comes into force.  See subsection 5(2).  If no date is specified in column 3 of an item, the allotment is continuing.

Note 2  Column 7 describes the area in which a channel is allotted for use in general terms.  The actual parameters of use of a channel will be determined by the conditions of the transmitter licence issued under the Radiocommunications Act 1992.

Note 3  Column 8 is included for information only.  “Transmitter specification number” refers to the identification number used by the ACMA for identifying particular transmitters.

Note 4  In some circumstances, a person may be permitted to transmit on a channel at an ERP higher than that determined in column 4.  See subsection 5(5).

Note 5  The one channel may be allotted to two or more different broadcasters, for use in different parts of the one licence area; the ACMA may issue a transmitter licence to one broadcaster authorising the use of the channel in one part of the licence area, and issue transmitter licences to other broadcasters authorising the use of the channel in different parts of the licence area.

Example The ACMA may issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 8 to a broadcaster in the one part of the licence area (Part A), and issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 8 to another broadcaster in a different part of the licence area (Part B).  Because of this, the first broadcaster can only use channel 8 in Part A of the licence area, and the second broadcaster can only use channel 8 in Part B of the licence area.

 (1) The commercial television broadcasting licence for this table is the licence with the number BSL116.

  Note This licence operates in the Regional Queensland TV1 licence area, and uses the callsign RTQ.

Note 2  Column 7 describes the area in which a channel is allotted for use in general terms.  The actual parameters of use of a channel will be determined by the conditions of the transmitter licence issued under the Radiocommunications Act 1992.

Note 3  Column 8 is included for information only.  “Transmitter specification number” refers to the identification number used by the ACMA for identifying particular transmitters.

Note 4  In some circumstances, a person may be permitted to transmit on a channel at an ERP higher than that determined in column 4.  See subsection 6(5).

Note 5  The one channel may be allotted to two or more different broadcasters, for use in different parts of the one licence area; the ACMA may issue a transmitter licence to one broadcaster authorising the use of the channel in one part of the licence area, and issue transmitter licences to other broadcasters authorising the use of the channel in different parts of the licence area.

Example The ACMA may issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 8 to a broadcaster in the one part of the licence area (Part A), and issue a transmitter licence for the use of channel 8 to another broadcaster in a different part of the licence area (Part B).  Because of this, the first broadcaster can only use channel 8 in Part A of the licence area, and the second broadcaster can only use channel 8 in Part B of the licence area.
