CBVT-DT Quebec City

Is CBVT-DT Quebec City on the air now? Here is a question in French about it:

http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=50745

If you answer that thread please also post in English here too about whether that station is up now.

You're able to get WPTZ-DT's channel 14 signal in Sherbrooke, Kaphyr? I was worried it wouldn't make it there because of their directional antenna pattern that reduced the signal in that direction...

You are in the right thread sebrous, and I asked a few days ago about OTA HD in ville de Quebec but I don't think it is available. The Burlington Vermont stations are too far away to get and there are no stations in Maine that can reach that far.

You could ask Marc in the Official CBC-HD thread if he knows when the Quebec City SRC station will be up, because he works for CBC:

Montreal South Shore (Brossard)

Montreal South Shore (Brossard).

Using the Radioshack 1501880 UHF/VHF amplified indoor antenna beside a basement window (right in the middle of the window, exactly like TheIceMaster). Oh, the antenna is pointing pretty much due south.

2, 19 - CBFT-DT (SRC) - 85%
3, 53 - WCAX-DT (CBS) - 85% (!)
6, 20 - CBMT-DT (CBC) - 90%
38, 57 - WCFE-DT (PBS) - 70%

By the way, you guys have been a great resource, thanks for all the info.

the info.
I don't want to contradict Stampeder but Obberius has an even better way to list channels! I haven't found a comprehensive list anywhere yet so why don't we make one here that everyone can refer to.

I find it's pretty handy to have both the physical channel to tune in and the digital channel number.

here we go:
Code:
Call    Station  Physical  Digital Sub
sign    Name     channel   channel channels  Reception
CBFT    SRC      19        2       1         88%
WCAX    CBS      53        3       1         80%
WETK    PBS      32        33      1         66%
WFFF    FOX      43        5       1         88% can't lock in!
CBMT    CBC      20        6       1         88%
WCFE    PBS      38        57      1          4% was in the 60's moments ago
Still can't believe I'm getting such good reception with the ATI indoor antenna 50' above ground. Id ATI can't provide decent software you got to give it to them for the hardware.

If anyone can give me the sub channels the software I'm using now can't detect them.

Since not all may read the Burlington thread on another forum:

=============================
RF13 - ABC - WVNY - ???? - NO SIGNAL
RF14 - NBC - WPTZ - ???? - NO SIGNAL
RF19 - SRC - CBFT - 2.1 - 99-100% (27-29DB)
RF20 - CBC - CBMT - 6.1 - 97-100% (25-28DB)
RF32 - PBS - WETK - 33.1 - 85-90% (20-24DB)
RF38 - PBS - WCFE - 57.1 - 93-97% (25-27DB)
RF43 - FOX - WFFF - 44.1 - 23-25% (6-8DB)
RF53 - CBS - WCAX - 3.1 - 75-83% (19-21DB)


A-Neutronics AV-891 - INDOOR
===========================
RF13 - ABC - WVNY - ???? - NO SIGNAL
RF14 - NBC - WPTZ - ???? - NO SIGNAL
RF19 - SRC - CBFT - 2.1 - 99-100% (29-31DB)
RF20 - CBC - CBMT - 6.1 - 97-100% (26-28DB)
RF32 - PBS - WETK - 33.1 - 97-100% (27-29DB)
RF38 - PBS - WCFE - 57.1 - 97-100% (26-27DB)
RF43 - FOX - WFFF - 44.1 - 27-31% (9-11DB)
RF53 - CBS - WCAX - 3.1 - 75-83% (19-21DB)


A-Neutronics AV-891 - OUTDOOR (~15' from the ground)
================= ==================================
RF13 - ABC - WVNY - ???? - 22-24% (6.3-6.4DB)
RF14 - NBC - WPTZ - ???? - NO SIGNAL
RF19 - SRC - CBFT - 2.1 - 95-100% (27-29DB)
RF20 - CBC - CBMT - 6.1 - 95-100% (27-29DB)
RF32 - PBS - WETK - 33.1 - 95-99% (25-27DB)
RF38 - PBS - WCFE - 57.1 - 93-97% (24-26DB)
RF43 - FOX - WFFF - 44.1 - 65-69% (18-19DB)
RF53 - CBS - WCAX - 3.1 - 95-100 (26-28DB)


Adding an amp (Motorola Booster 15DB) behind the A-Neutronics's pre-amp boosts WFFF to the ~22DB range (85%+) and slightly improves WVNY by 2-3DB to ~9DB, way below what is required for a lock.

I hope ABC will solve the reception problem for the Montreal area as I can get a crystal clear reception of 22 Analog but I am VERY far from a lock on the DTV.

Yesterday, i took a drive down to the border(Lacolle) with my computer and my tuner. I was able to lock WVNY only at exit 3. Granted it was just the cheap antenna that came with it, but still i was able to get channel 3 easily in La Prairie.

They abosultly need to do something about this.

Hum.. you could lock in LaPrairie.. may I ask where you were for the lock? I'm a little south and west of LaPrairie and cannot get a lock although I have never really been able to test my antennas in the VHF range...

PS: I'd like a picture too

That's okay with me, but uniformity is good too, so remember that there are already hundreds of reports here at DHC in the simpler format. Just make sure when you post results that they are very readable for newcomers.

I'm getting WCAX (CBS) at 97% today, with perfect lock! I usually get it at ~80%, with a pretty weak lock. None of my other stations are getting improved reception. I hope this is a permanent boost on WCAX's end!

New to OTA in St-Isidore near Chateauguay

HI everyone,

I just read what I had to read before posting and know a lot more than before,great forums guys

Before getting gear up,I wanted to know what channels HD would be available in my area,I live in St-Isidore near Chateauguay on the south shore of MTL.I know I can get SRC CBC and CBS HD for sure.What the best site that I can enter my location and see what I can get.(Big fan of the BILLS,anyones knows if they is a broadcast OTA from Buffalo that gives the games)

I am thinking of getting a CM 4228 for the UHF and a WADE VIP for the VHF

where can I fing the spec of a Quamtum 1110-1115,is this VHF antenna is better than a WADE?

I am going to buy a new TV soon with a ATSC tuner integrated.thinking about a JVC.

anyones knows if they are projectors with a ATSC tuner?

thanks in advance
