Yes, they are still broadcasting but definitely at reduced power. I don't believe it is your setup, contrary to the previous post. They most definitely changed something.

I believe they are broadcasting from First Canadian Place at slightly lower power.
Rabbit Ears shows CITY for example broadcasting at 15kw instead of the normal 21Kw.
Global normally at 100kw is down to 34kw.
But the height is about 600 feet lower.
I imagine this is happening as they get their new antennas installed on the CN tower for repack.

Sorry, I didn't know you were that far away.

I'll check with my friend in Fort Erie to see if he is having issues with RF 40, 41, 44 and 47.

Thanks for the update. Saved me from going up to check out the antennae.

Anyone have contact info for the engineers at Global Toronto and City TV. Would like to ask them what's going on with their OTA broadcast. When can "we" expect the signal strength to be back?

They are part of phase 10 repack.
So they have until July 3. So I would guess it will be around then, but could be a bit before.
