7.2.3 LPA Scheduling Information
A WSDB shall provide a facility for users of LPA to register scheduling and location information.
(a) A WSDB shall obtain the following time-of-use scheduling information from any licensed LPA wishing to be protected from WSDs:
- Name of the individual or business responsible for an LPA;
- Contact address;
- Valid email address for contact person;
- Phone number for contact person;
- Geographical coordinates (see NAD83) of the location or area(s) of operation where the LPA will be used;
- TV channels used by the LPA at the indicated site(s) (see Footnote2)
- Specific hours, days, weeks and/or months when the LPA will be used (Note that on dates when an LPA is not in use, the site will not be offered protection from WSDs); and
- The LPA's licence number.
(b) With regard to item (a)(v) above, the following parameters should be noted:
- The area of operation for an LPA may be defined as a point and radius area or as a quadrilateral. Multiple registrations that specify more than one point in the facility may be entered for very large sites.
- Under the point and radius option, the operational location(s) of the LPA can be defined using up to 25 geographical points at any one time, with a maximum radius of operation of 500 metres around any point; or
- Under the quadrilateral option, the operational location(s) of the LPA can be defined based on the edges of straight lines connecting the vertices (geographic points) of the quadrilateral.
- Each quadrilateral must be specified with four geographic points and the distance between any two adjacent points must be limited to 3 km.
- In cases where an LPA occupies a larger area, up to four non-contiguous quadrilaterals may be registered.
Online registration of LPA can be facilitated by directly accessing designated WSDBs as indicated on the following Industry Canada website:http://www.ic.gc.ca/eic/site/smt-gst.nsf/eng/h_sf10498.html.
(c) A WSDB shall confirm that an LPA that wishes to register its time-of-use scheduling information in the database has a valid licence according to the Industry Canada database. If none exists, the WSDB shall reject the registration of the LPA, and return a message to contact Industry Canada for a licence.
(d) All registrations shall be considered public.
Footnote 2: For an LPA that is used on a fixed basis, the WSDB shall only allow the registration of the frequency or frequencies specified on the licence. For ENG-type LPA it is not necessary to perform this check.
