Schedule 1        Variations
(section 3)
  
[1]           Section 3, after definition of DAB
insert
depression angle means the angle between the horizontal line and the dividing line.
[2]           Section 3, after definition of designated BSA radio area
insert
dividing line — see section 3A.
ERP means effective radiated power.
[3]           Section 3, after definition of frequency block
insert
horizontal line means a horizontal line at the maximum antenna height of an antenna.
[4]           After section 3
insert
3A           Dividing line
         (1)   In this Plan, dividing line means a line from a point at the maximum antenna height of an antenna to a point on the Earth below the horizontal line.
         (2)   For subsection (1), if a negative value is specified in the depression angle, the point on the Earth is above the horizontal line.
[5]           After section 4
insert
5              Maximum ERP limits
         (1)   For each digital radio multiplex transmitter, the ERP of that transmitter in any part of a sector or bearing must not exceed the maximum ERP specified in the output radiation pattern table for that sector or bearing.
         (2)   If the output radiation pattern table for a digital radio multiplex transmitter specifies two maximum ERP values for a sector or bearing, the ERP of the transmitter in that sector or bearing must not exceed:
                (a)    for a point at or above the dividing line — the maximum ERP in the column headed “At or above dividing line”; and
               (b)    for a point below the dividing line — the maximum ERP in the column headed “Below dividing line”.
         (3)   The licensee of a digital radio multiplex transmitter must, if requested by ACMA to do so, demonstrate, to the satisfaction of ACMA, that the ERP of a transmitter in any part of a sector or bearing specified by ACMA complies with this section.
