Snow storm must have did some damage to Chan 22.1 as it is black signal is good and strong. 719am
I called and left message at engineering and used email to send the info too.

8-1 is out for me as well. Went to watch the morning news and there's nothing there... :(
I've also called and left VM with engineering.

23 CHAN-TV-6 Wilson Creek (anolog ) is on and I noticed CKVU 10 (anolog ) is also off for me.

I think what fringe to deepest fringe area folks are seeing is typical autumn changes. On one hand, there are less and less leaves on the trees so that should be helpful, but on the other hand the amount of moisture in the air is much, much higher than in the summer. Water molecules are killers of OTA signals.
I wonder if the current cold clear air has aided my situation. I now have CBC at 60 to 70%. I have changed nothing since I lost signal two weeks ago. Although, oddly, KVOS has now dropped form 60% to 20% and pixelizes occasionally.

Anybody know if CHAN 22-1 black out might be related to a power boost? I haven't been able to receive the channels since the summer and now I'm getting it again.
2010-11-22, 02:55 PM
I've noticed the same regarding the signal strength of 2.1 ...back up to 76 and steady.

A few posts back there was some talk about moisture in the air affecting signals. Last night, around 6:00pm I was surprised to be picking up 28-1 and 28-2 from Orcas Island. I've been able to "see" their signal here in Nanaimo for a while but never strong enough to get the picture. I figure that last night either their power was boosted for a while or it was the extremely clear, dry air caused by the very low temperatures that allowed the signal to reach me without as much distortion from the usual moisture in the atmosphere.
Unfortunately, after about 10 minutes the power went out on Orcas Island and I lost all the Bellingham stations.
Anyone else finding their reception improved with this cold, dry weather?

The relative humidity has dropped drastically and the surface moisture in the ground has evaporated or frozen, so it doesn't surprise me that there are some reception oddities now. :)

Could have been a power surge before it when out ?

The past couple of days I've been having issues with both CBC and CTV - lots of macroblocking and freezing. Just wondering if it's an issue with the transmitters, or something going on with my antenna. Anyone else having any issues?
2010-12-07, 11:35 PM
I haven't noticed that myself from over here. Anyone else?
2010-12-08, 12:04 AM
I think it might just be my setup. Time to tighten up those coax connections again. Thanks for confirming. Cheers.

As of about 10:30 tonight I notice that CHNM and CKVU are both in black. The tuner shows good signal levels so I'm assuming the problem is on their end. Are others seeing the same thing?
2010-12-18, 03:04 AM
check...i'm seeing the same
2010-12-18, 03:05 AM
Yes, both are "No signal" for me.
2010-12-18, 03:43 AM
Yes, both channels are out here too.
2010-12-18, 01:29 PM
I just checked and they're both up now with strong signals as per usual in 1080i.

After being annoyed I went back over the thread and found that CBC's program guide has been missing for a little over six months now. A post on 2010-5-13 notes that their encoder was having problems and will be replaced soon. I wonder if it has been replaced yet but they just didn't care to hook up the program guide data.
I wanted to record some of the Christmas stuff so my daughter could watch it but my Myth TV box has been showing 'CBUT Vancouver HD, Event XXXX' since June. It would be nice if the CRTC mandated correct info like the FCC does.
