Vermont ETV now working on the 9200

It seems they fixed their problem...now we can all enjoy a few more OTA signals on the 9200.
Hopefully NBC. CBS ABC and FOX are not too far behind.

VERMONT educational

They are not sending out any program content on -2 -3 and -4... they are only using -1 for SD and -5 for HD.

That's bizarre. 'cause the other night, CBOT-DT had the Sens in 480p while CBLT-DT had the Leafs in HD. Maybe they think people in Ottawa hate Toronto more than people in Montréal.

Okay, let's not talk hockey here. Use the other DHC threads about CBC's hockey broadcast decisions.

yep sure looks like it's in the zone.. I plotted a similar one in MapPoint and it went up to Saint-Jérôme. The circle is roughly 162km in diameter with a couple discrepancies.

If one falls in that zone; what colour zone of antennas does it cover? I've got a red zone antenna ready to mount on the roof if I can find a ladder :/

Yes and it should be easy to get them all (CBS NBC FOX PBS). PBS is up and I get it y from St-Eustache with a pre-amp RadioShack Antenna in my Attic. The contour Map for PBS is somewhat smaller than the other so I don't think there will be any problem. My guess is that it be possible to get those stations up to St-Jerome.

Plus, you don't have to be in the 41db contour to get a lock. I think all you need is 15db.
