Whats the point of maintaining an analog signal. I don't get it, is it maybe to keep simsubs in those markets.

Yup, though I feel they should find a way to convert the few remaining to DTV.

Link to my TVFool results is in my profile Homepage URL. I suggest others do the same.

@pritchard66 Welcome to the forums! Have you tried a re-scan of channels on your tuner? Sometimes broadcasters make changes to their digital signal configuration, necessitating a re-scan.

Global TV - Oil Springs

Does anyone know if this transmitter is down?

No signal at my location for the past two days.

For give me, but you are 300 kms away from this transmitter and your are receiving it OTA? Tropo maybe?

This transmitter site is near Sarnia Ontario so you must have one heck of an OTA setup.

Global TV - Oil Springs

Global TV transmitter, Oil Springs has changed broadcast frequency (29 -> 35) and the transmitting antenna is 50 feet lower than previous. This explains our inability to receive the signal at our location.

Likely done to prevent interference with WVIZ Cleveland which INCREASED ERP to 280 kW and moved from 26 -> 35.

Looks like some households now will be without Global OTA.

Oil Springs

Coverage pattern on the new antenna has changed and puts more signal to the North.

Rob, I figured as much. This was likely done to protect WVIZ Cleveland which also had a large power increase.

So......this is now two Canadian networks (CBC & Global) now MIA for OTA viewers in SW Ontario. Looks like there won't be much OTA in Canada soon.

Make sure that you let Global know. Without feedback they won't act to improve coverage.

Jase88, I called Global and they put me through to engineering. I left voice mail about the situation. That was a week ago and I haven't had any response. I've also sent two emails, with no response from the broadcaster. They just don't care.

My next action will be to write the CCTS and file a formal complaint. Stay tuned (pun intended).

According to the CRTC site. There will be a decision on some of Global's transmitters

Decision relating to the following application considered under the Commission’s Part 1 process:

Corus Entertainment Inc.
Deletion of transmitters and reallocation of tangible benefits
Public record for this application: 2018-0936-0

I believe this in relation to many of their remaining analog transmitters. Not sure if this will also cover the LTSS program.
