CFTO/CTV Toronto has moved back to 9RF in the VHFband. Is your antenna UHF only?

CTV 9.1 is not on 40.1 UHFband anymore so,.. Try and manually enter 9.1.

If your antenna is UHFband only, then you may not get any VHFband channels at all.

Are they going to crank up the power for City , Omni 1 & Omni 2 when they move from FCP/BMO to CN tower ( I believe the ETA is mid Oct for that ) ?

For now its definitely a pretty low signal for all 3 as compared to before ..hopefully they crank it up when they move to CN tower from the FCP/BMO building .

I'd say even weaker than their pre-transitional signals. Are all three of them on the BMO building?

Here's what it looks like from my location 85 miles east.
CBLT - 98%
CBLFT -93%
TVO- 87%
CIII - 82%
CFTO - 76%
Omni 2 - 5%
Omni 1- 0%
True ..both Omnis & City TV are definitely weak signals currently . Hopefully the signals are stronger when they move to CN tower from the current FCP/BMO bldg.

200 meters higher and 20% higher ERP for Omnis, nearly 50% higher for CITY should boost the signal a ton.

BTW. I tried to ask Omni by email when they estimate the move to the CN Tower but the email kicked back on invalid address.

Humbar, I was trying to get a status update. That October estimate is from 6 months ago. Just trying to find out if they are still on schedule.

Did Rogers mention that somewhere ? i.e 20 % higher ERP for the two Omnis & 50 % higher ERP for City TV when the transition to CN tower from the current FCP/BMO building is complete .

That's cool ..what is the current ERP for the two Omnis & City TV in GTA from the FCP/BMO bldg ?
