|Andysradio||Does anyone know if Bancroft ch. 2 is on the air. I was near Bancroft Dec. 28, and I was not able to detect it.|

|NipissingOTA||No kidding. I did a comparison with the power of the three stations in my area and it's night & day compared to what CHEX-DT-2 Oshawa is allocated for power. Yikes...|

|Humbar||I think CHEX-2 DT Oshawa operates around 184 Watts, not much.|

I'm trying to keep track of what's happening elsewhere in anticipation of the digital conversion of the remaining analog channels in my area and elsewhere in Northern Ontario.

|Humbar||Yes it has, and its moved to RF29 at extremely low power. I've never been able to receive it, although I was always able to pick up the analog signal.|

|NipissingOTA||I've been keeping tabs on the digital conversion of OTA television stations in various parts of Ontario. Any word whether the CHEX-TV-2 Oshawa transmitter has been updated to HD? Industry Canada indicated it was supposed to have been completed by June 2019.|

I can confirm that 36 Smiths Falls is now off air.
Also, Prescott/Spencerville is now in digital RF 28, though it maps to 26.1. The picture is digital and 16x9 but it sure does not look HD.
Is there anyone that can confirm this?
Maybe they have to upgrade a receiver or something.

|Brightonian||Global Cobourg RF27 sending out signal with no picture for the last few days. My tv is unable to decode it.|

Scroll down, and you will see all the Channels that are changing, and CITS and Omni are next..

|Andysradio||A number of those transmitters Corus is shutting down have already been converted to digital. So *in theory* they should be able to move these transmitters to other sites that have yet to convert [eg Oshawa]|
|2019-06-13 12:05 PM|
Shouldn't be a huge surprise but the CRTC is allowing Corus/Global to shut down 44 rebroadcast transmitters and reallocate the tangible benefits earmarked for (their) digital conversion to go elsewhere.

|Andysradio||LONsat you are correct and this decision does not include LTSS. The only transmitters they are asking to close in Ontario are Smiths Falls and Bancroft ch. 4 [CHEX repeater]|

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.
