WPBS indicated in their 387 that they have an aux antenna installed and ready to go. They're already advertising their rescan date as July 29. RESCAN DAY IS MONDAY, JULY 29 FOR WPBS-TV | WPBS News Room

My mistake, thanks for the info. I got confused when the aux antenna pdf attachment in one of the 10WBs was for WDPB on channel 24, but I admittedly didn't read the other docx attachment.

TVO Belleville has been MIA for me in Peterborough since WPBS moved to 26.
Are they still on the air? Lowered the power?
They were scheduled to move to RF22 but that allotment is hardly better with WXXI there now

Yes TVO Belleville is still there.
I don’t think anything has changed.

Living in East-end Belleville and can confirm that TVO is still operational. My big issue is the loss of WPBS, thanks to the tardiness of TVO to convert to its new channel allotment. All of the other full power Watertown stations are coming in clearly. I also see a good signal on WROC that was always an issue when it was up higher on the UHF band.

It seems that Canadian stations only need to follow repack if they are causing issues with other Canadian stations on Canadian soil.
Hopefully they are waiting for a better option, because RF22 that they were suppose to go to is the same as WXXI Rochester.

If the idiots at the CRTC would get their heads out of their asses, we could have extra channels on each frequency, like the Americans. Here in Belleville, we're still stuck with that monstrosity of RF6 CTV Ottawa that is still in analog. We have no local CBC or CTV OTA channels left in the Belleville/Kingston corridor and this would be a wonderful opportunity to add CTV, CTV2 and CBC on one frequency. A total waste of bandwidth, with the ability to get 4 Global transmitters and one TVO locally, it's overkill. Seems so ridiculous. It's even more ridiculous when you consider the CBC channels being scrambled on C Band to boot. We're paying taxes for what? Oh yeah, Propaganda.

I sent a note to TVO last week and they are planning to have Belleville changed over by the end of September.

That’s terrible news for me.
Goodbye WXXI ☹️

TVO should move to RF16 where CJOH-6 was slated to go.
CJOH Deseronto is closing Oct. 2020

Yes 16 would be a better choice, though not ideal because of WNYO will be using 16 from Grand Island.
It almost seems to me that TVO Belleville is broadcasting a weaker signal since repack.
I now need to point directly at it to get it. And sometimes like right now it’s not coming in at all.

This is just a guess on my part, and I have no proof that this is the case - CBC is going to add a Radio One transmitter on 104.7 MHz at the Read site, and install a new antenna to combine with the French service that is already there on 94.3 MHz. I wonder if TVO has reduced their power because there is (or will be) antenna work going on??

Thanks for the insight!
That very well could be it.
May also be the reason for the TVO repack delay. Perhaps they just want to do all the tower work at once.

the thing that pisses me off is that tvo in kitchener is on rf28 slated to move in phase 8 sometime next year and is interfering with wjet from erie as they were forced to move to rf28 this august to make way for ion tv out of buffalo.so now anyone that near lake erie on the Canadian side is screwed for seeing tvo and wjet tv out of erie for almost a year.dear tvo please get your act together and switch to your new rf 22.i think the real reason that tv moved is because doug ford has no money for tvo move.

TVO wanted to shut down all OTA transmitters except Toronto 2 years ago, this has nothing to do with Ford, who I mostly disagree with.
