Here is New Westminster I get
CHAN DT 97% perfect picture and sound.
CBC DT 40% no lock
CTV DT 14% no lock
What ever CHAN DT is doing it is certainly the best and the DTV I will tuning in.

In a high reflection area like yours, danbcman, the different frequencies seem to have different properties than if you had line of sight.

Ya it is so narrow of a path for my reception to happen and the neat thing is it is where I get the best KCPQ and the rest of Seatac so in a way is neat as I aim once recieve twice :)

wow there needs to be some vast changes as I look at the states I see so much power they use here tiny drops

Just wondering, are there any major upgrades/additions being done over at CTV Vancouver? I'd like to think so seeing how they're going to be the main broadcast centre for the 2010 games.

Congrats to global for going live.
What's the next channel to go digital in the lower mainland? Are we still expecting channel m or has that been sidelined? Any news for CKVU?

Jason, you might have a bit more insite than the rest of us do on the following, but if you were to hazard a guess as to which station will be the next to go "live" with a -DT suffix, which station would it be?

Well from the conversation I had with the engeneer at CHEK TV a while back they weren't sure if htey were going to move on DT right away but since then ownership has changed and E! is from what I understand live back east so I would say E! west may be next I go even further to say right after the CHAN 22 is setup and stable.:)

Hard to say, I can't see anyone being proactive on this one. I think they are waiting until they are forced to shut off the analog. Maybe our CBC french?
Channel M's transmitter is at our CBC site, I haven't heard any plans for them to go digital, although they were just sold to I think Rogers broadcasting, so I'm not sure of their plans.

With Channel M being Rogers now, have you heard anything about them moving (analog) to the Rogers tower on Mt.Seymour? I can't imagine the lease on CBC's tower being cheap. Or would they make that move for digital only, when they were forced to? I would think they're clock is ticking, being that they have a digital transitional licence. I remember reading on a CRTC website that Rogers bought the -DT license as well.

Still only two OTA channels here in Mill Bay; the Bellingham ones. Not encouraging...
BTW, I get KVOS on 35.121 instead of 35.1.

I don't seem to be receiving CIVT-DT right now. CBUT-DT is still coming in fine though.

2008-04-15, 11:38 AM
Looks like CIVT-DT is back.
2008-04-15, 01:24 PM
Wouldn't it be nice if CIVT switched their analogue to ch33 and gave ch 32 their full power for the Olympics?
2008-04-16, 01:19 PM
Danman--re 43.1; signal this morning 17, also not much activity or fluctuation.
2008-04-16, 01:30 PM
Ya 43.1 it must some wierd signal from all that around me
2008-04-16, 02:12 PM
I'm not getting even a hint of signal on 43.1 so I'm guessing it must be some odd reflection of CHNM's analogue signal or carrier on 42.

Is anyone having trouble receiving CBUT tonight? Normally I can, but tonight it's cutting in and out??
I'm located in Port Moody.
2008-04-24, 12:39 PM
I wasn't watching after midnight but prior to that I didn't see anything unusual about CBC's broadcasts. Are you referring to CBUT (analogue) or CBUT-DT (digital)?
