I sent another message to clarify on that construction permit for Grand Forks, but Devils Lake and crookston on a map are pretty close, so who knows.Prairie Public replaced KGFE with two digital towers (one in Devils Lake and one in Crookston), which have been broadcasting since February 2006. Devils Lake is KMDE-DT (25-1, 25-2, 25-3) and Crookston is KCGE-DT
(16-1, 16-2, 16-3). More information about our digital towers is available online at http://www.prairiepublic.org/corporate/index.html.
.. cheap [email protected] and finally CBC:CTV: Thanks for your e-mail regarding digital transmission. Currently only Toronto and Vancouver have over the air HD transmitters. The station itself
is fully digital at this time. We feed MTS TV, Shaw and Starchoice a direct digital feed. We do not have a timeline regarding the switch to a digital off air transmitter at his time.
No other CTV stations have a conversion plan in place at this time.
The antennae and transmitter for digital transmission need to be purchased for each site. Costs range up to $2,000,000 per location for these two items.
2011! HOLY CRAP. But at least they have a plan for it.I contacted our transmission department regarding the implementation of DTV in Winnipeg. It is currently in the CBC capital plan for 2011, subject to budget allocation and approval. *We are expecting that it will go ahead as planned, *but a reduction in government funding or commercial revenue could delay it's implementation.
