TitanTV.com has a link after you set up your location. It only accepts U.S. addresses so I put in Rousses Point NY. When viewing the current off-air station tv listings(57.1 & 57.2) there is a link to "Digital Stations coming soon" under the HOME and HDTV buttons.

Speaking of WCFE, I watched Primetime - a full one hour in upconverted SD to 1080i - last night (57-1). Looked pretty nice. And it wasn't even pure HD.

Will PBS stations go "HD-only" (16:9, etc...) when they stop transmitting 480i? Or will we stop seeing -02 channels soon?

On another topic, are we getting closer to see CBMT-DT and CBFT-DT more to Mount Royal?

For those who have success getting channels out of Plattsburgh, you will be glad to know that...

over in Saranac Lake, the new TV construction permit on channel 40 has taken the calls WCWF. Will the new signal, expected to sign on as a digital-only facility serving Burlington and Plattsburgh, be seeking affiliation with the CW network? Sure looks that way, doesn't it?

So looks like there may be one more ATSC station coming on the air sooner than later that you may be able to pull in...

WFFF Burlington VT reduced they're ERP to 47kW!!!

I hope i'm mistaking, but WFFF has filed a new construction permit and reduced they're ERP to 47. A look at they're new coutour Map show that Montreal is now excluded.


Can anyone prove me wrong, please.....
I want to watch this channel!!!

thanks

I think all hope is not lost just yet... their contour has sufficient overlap into Quebec that Montreal and area would be in the Deep Fringe/Deepest Fringe zone, so it will take some good OTA gear to get it. Also, 47kW might sound low but in ATSC it is a respectable power. Too bad they made this decision though!

Joedornan: It looks like Starchoice is the only way to go for you if you can't get Burlington... Even SRC/CBC would be a stretch since they're broadcasting off their building, on the other side of the mountain.

Expect Delays with Burlington VT Station Construction

Some not-so-good news:

Our friend Yipikyer has reported on AVS that construction on Mt. Mansfield construction will NOT be able to start as soon as weather permits. They have to wait until late June until a bunch of stupid BIRDS make babies! While construction was said to be going "ahead of schedule" last year, there seems to be still no chance of getting the estimated on-air testing dates moved up from late fall to late summer.

Here's the thread (scroll to the bottom):

Not good news from WPTZ-DT Burlington for Montrealers

Engineer at WPTZ Channel 5 emailed me that the transition to Digital OTA is going well and they should be on the air in the fall but he doubts that Montreal will catch his channel because the transmission towards the north of vermont will only be at about 10% of what the rest of the state will get. I believe that this is mandated from the CRTC.
