CHCH signal outage?
I'm only getting static on the OTA CHCH channel here in North Bay. Anyone else running into the same issue?
CHCH-TV-6 North Bay 32 (UHF) N/A 5 kW 116 m 46°18′10″N 79°24′39″W

Global down in Winnipeg from Sept 24 to 27
I guess I should have posted this earlier as I see today that Global (40.1) is back.
I heard reports that it was down on Saturday, can't remember when I first noticed but today I see it's back up.
Here is the news from the source:

I emailed City Saskatchewan to ask why they didn't have an OTA broadcast and the person said that they didn't know, but there are no plans to set one up at the moment. I told the person that I think that there would be lots of support for it, and was told that my comments would be passed on.
All in all, I doubt anything will be done unless the CRTC forces them to start broadcasting OTA, but you never know. If anyone else wants to email them, the contact info can be found on their website.

|painter||Just got that information from wikipedia, and that is what it states that their license does not include an OTA signal. Not having cable or satellite I was wondering the same thing and that is what I found. Emailed CITY Saskatchewan to find out if they were going to offer an OTA signal like other local channels and never did get a reply.|

|ds514||Interesting. Would that be the CRTC holding that up, or would city just not be that interested in broadcasting OTA? It's strange since the channel used to be a public broadcaster. Like stampeder, I'm mainly interested in more OTA hockey.|

|painter||CITY Saskatchewan does not have a license to cast an OTA signal in Saskatchewan. Their feed must be by cable or satellite.|

That's on topic. I'm curious to know what is going on too, given that City will be carrying NHL hockey.

City Saskatchewan OTA?
This may not be the right thread for this, but does anyone know why City Saskatchewan doesn't broadcast OTA?

CKND-DT-2 is on the air!
I saw some RF on my spectrum analyzer last night, and after connecting the tv and fidgetting in the menus, I finally got it to scan in on physical ch 9, it shows as ch 2.1 once scanned in.
This is from the Brandon Hills, just South of Brandon on fairly high ground using a ham 6m dipole element I had lying around, hardly ideal for this, but It's only for the purposes of playing around with finding this transmitter. I already have the station in HD on my satellite tv service anyway, so it's not like performance is important at all.
I saw about -72dBm for the pilot and -82dBm or so for the rest of the signal on my spectrum analyzer, whose displayed noise floor was -101dBm.

|sparkycivic||Global has installed their DTV antenna at Basswood Manitoba last week. Still no RF detected at my house on RF CH9 using spectrum analyzer... I'll update here when something changes. They posted a video taken by one of the riggers riding the basket up the tower and passing the new antenna, but I lost the link for it.|

I think Dougall Media asks for this every time their affiliation agreement with the CBC comes up. I'm pretty sure they did it last time, too. As they admit, it's a negotiating ploy.
It would be interesting to see if CTV would want them back as an affiliate. It's more likely that Rogers would take them on as a CITY affiliate.
When I first saw the application, I thought maybe they were asking for more power on channel 2. Does anyone in Thunder Bay actually receive them over the air?
