Question OTA Station Status: Ottawa, Watertown NY, S. Colton NY

It's interesting that Rogers is applying for two out-of-town DTV signals, and no sign of when CHRO-DT, which is local to Ottawa, will build their DTV transmitter. Rogers built a large media complex a few years ago in the Byward Market, two blocks from our place, and I have to wonder whether or not there was any consideration given at the time to DTV broadcasting.

CHRO is owned by Chum Media Limited, Omni.1/2 are owned by Rogers.
Here is probably where the discrepancy lies. Chum has been extremely slow in rolling out -DT transmitters...to my knowledge, only City Toronto and City Vancouver have them???

Maybe it has to do with the purchase of the Craig A-Channels and they're running into a cash crunch? Other than T1 are there any other A-Channels that are running an OTA DTV signal?

CBC-HD OTA: Ottawa and Quebec City Soon

Does anyone know when it will be on the air, and how has the strike affected its launch?

Anyone? All I knew was that it was scheduled for a September launch.

Odds are the strike has affected the launch...

That's correct, CBC-HD was scheduled to be up in Vancouver by now on channel 58 with SRC-HD on 16. After completing that installation the plan was to tackle Ottawa next, then keep going across Canada. Now that the CBC strike has apparently been settled we'll hopefully see the DTV stations in Vancouver and Ottawa come up in the near future... http://www.digitalhomecanada.com/for...ad.php?t=31444

Thanks for that Marc. Would that 3 month delay be compounded to affect all future CBC digital upgrades?

Not necessarily. The installations do not have to be linear.
I don't have any dates to offer right now.

ATSC transmitter on order for CBOT

A little bird told me that two ATSC transmitters for Ottawa were ordered in the last week or two. Given the lead time on those items is at least 8-12 wks, we'll probably see the antenna lit up maybe by early June. I hope no-one was holding their breath!

cheers,
aaron

I take it that would be one for CBC-HD and one for SRC-HD in Ottawa, aaron? Great info!

I wonder if the antennas will be at Camp Fortune?

Can you tell where CBC-HD will be from this? It looks like the new ones will be co-located with the old ones, wherever they are.
