Here in Winnipeg CKND has been solid since they switched to channel 19. I wonder if you are experiencing interference from KVRR Fargo?
Because of dtv repack, CBWFT channel 51 is moving to channel 32. I imagine in order to install the channel 32 antenna they need to power down CBWT channel 27 to protect the tower workers. Both antennas are on the same tower.
CBC is not currently broadcasting. I believe they return to the air on July 14.Got CKND working finally. Built a yagi for 500-550MHz and side-mounted it off the tv tower about 24ft up. Used an old TV antenna boom and made up elements from some thin SST wire I had kicking around. Used a full wave loop DE with a 300-75 ohm transformer. No preamp (yet). Pulls in CKND at 54% sig quality... not great but ok I suppose for an antenna buried in the trees. The HDHomeRun Connect seems to be working ok with this setup.
Didn't get a chance to fine-tune/aim the antenna, clouds started sparking so time to leave be the antenna work for now. Raining as I type and signal holding well.
Suprisingly the antenna picks up 13 at about 40%SQ and CKY at 70% (about 25km away). Should pick up CBC once it starts broadcasting again.. unless it is already and I am not picking it up... Oh and yes it picks up 35 but poorly at 17-24% SQ. Can't say I actually watch that one so no loss.
CBWT channel 27 and CBWFT channel 32 are currently broadcasting.
