I can't help but feel bad for some of you folks who have to deal with such crazy tropo. I guess for once, lower elevation is a blessing.

Asides from the usual Rochester UHF trio, and WSYR...

I feel your pain. WGRZ is alot harder to get if you're too close to the lake, probably due to multipath courtesy of lake and enscarpment. Their tower is much lower than WIVB, and WKBW's tower. Even...

TVFool added that awhile ago. It's not broadcasting. It's still on analog 56, which I get here near Oakville with bars (due to interfering 56 CBC from Kitchener trying to come in from the rear lobe)....

I know eh? What nonsense!

I find it ironic too because I recall CBC or SRC did a story on the increasing popularity of OTA HDTV. Also ironic is that coming into the transition, they were leaders...

Yes we were joking. Obviously the first they would do is Toronto, but I too hope they do a fair transition for all Ontarians! I'm surprised they have Cloyne and Belleville in their plan.

Wayne, Our point isn't against Rogers getting TVO.

This is absolutely outrageous.

How dare they send their digital feed over to BDUs over OTA. TVO was born as an essential OTA service to the people of Ontario. And the audacity for them to reply to...

Angry extremely angry at TVO now.

This is absurd.

They are a public broadcaster. If anything, it should be them that be the first to do OTA. What a shame. I don't care if they don't have any money to do it. They're publicly...

See it depends just how close to the lake you are. The closer you are, the angle between Hamilton and Toronto increases. A direct aim SE would put those stations closer and closer to...
