You are confusing the repack with the ATSC-3 conversion. They are two totally different things. The repack will require a bunch of stations to change channel numbers (not just those in RF38-51). ...

I have noticed the same issue the past couple nights with CIII-DT-6. Global National was unwatchable, so I ended up watching the podcast.

That was only in Southern Ontario. In Eastern Ontario, the distances were too far for an OTA relay to work. I believe initially after the digital transition, Ottawa had a fibre link and both...

I tend to agree. Reading the article it says nothing about a falling tower, but just the lack of a TVO broadcast. If this plan goes ahead, TVO would likely sell the tower. It has a larger value as...

Hi Scott and welcome,
