Im cool with it except the part about the TV station getting back to me. They did as they were quite concerned, but it was A-Channel that I contacted, not RogersOmni1. The interference on A-Channel turned out to be not so bad so I told them as soon as I knew. Channel 60 though, which is RogersOmni1, is still a big mess. The CTV/A-Channel people were responsive the same day. Here is the email:
Yes looking forward to digital in the fall

Good to here 43 is ok now.
I was reading thru your emails and the reply from Industry Canada.
I will forward to our regulatory group and get their read on it.
Once this all goes digital in September that will clear it up as well.

Hi again. Sorry to bother you - the only channel Im getting bad interference on is channel 60. Channel 43 looks fine now.

Here is an attached picture of my best reception of A-Channel now on UHF 43. It used to be perfect

I am an avid A-Channel watcher from your over-the-air broadcast on channel 43. I live on the 13th floor of an apartment building with line-of-sight to your tower near Manotick. Just recently I have learned that there was some kind of PCS/ LTE? Rogers base station licensed at 734 MHz right across the street from where I live. There are thousands of people that live in the buildings on Lees Avenue. I can no longer get a decent picture on 43 even just using a simple dipole antenna placed in the window facing your TV transmitter.
I wrote to Industry Canada but they suggested I try to resolve this on my own. I know enough about radio waves to know that this is serious interference being caused to your station.
Can you help me? You are welcome to come here to see just how bad it is. I will also try to take a photo and send it. Ive done quite a bit of research on the license numbers which you can see at the bottom of this email.
