Lots of shuffling around in US cities with the subchannels. I'm getting CourtTV in 720P on a subchannel now (I'm in the Windsor/Detroit market). Stay tuned as you might get some more programming changes.WPXJ Batavia has launched 2 new sub-channels on 51.5 and 51.6. They are Defy and True/Real. Check them out.
Only way this happens is if Canadian taxpayers pay for the upgrades. Otherwise, we're having 1.0 and they keep shuttering transmitters, like the present. OTA TV is so small here in Canada that they could shut it off tomorrow and each station would get under 10 complaints.So: we will have OTA and it will be ATSC3.0 and there will be a 5G mobile component - because that’s what the neighbours have decided to do. We don’t need the subchannels though- we can barely keep up with CanCon Rules as it is with what we have.
There is no SNR on 3.0 stations, it's only listed on 1.0 on my TV.How far away are you from Detroit? Do you have any way of displaying an SNR reading for this channel? Receiving this channel is neat because it’s one of the only robust ATSC 3.0 streams available.
For the past five years I have tested three Channel Master antennas for HDTV reception. I'm using a 50' steel tower with a 7775 Channel Master preamp, a 9521a channel master rotor and RG-11 downlead [to reduce line loss].
The first antenna was a 4248 channel master antenna and I was able to pick-up all Rochester NY channels, Buffalo channels recieved were channels 2,4,29,43 none from Syracuse.
I then installed a 4228 channel master and recieve channels 68 and 24 from Syracuse and intermitently channels 3,5,9.
My neighbor then gave me a new Channel Master 4250 which I gave a try signal strength was the same as the 4228 the only differance is that the 4250 was extremely directional and I thought that would help me recieve channel 5 out of Toronto because the physical channel for CBLT 5 is channel 20 and in Rochester the PBS analog channel is channel 21 I am experinceing co-channel interferance. The 4250 did not correct the problem so I took it down and put back the 4228. This is an experiment in progress, some channels are low power, some experiance co-channel interferance.
I always scan for digital channels between 6:00am-8:00am I have recieved digital channels as far away as Watertown NY. I used to recieve analog channel 27 Global from the CN tower but since Fox network in Rochester started broadcasting digitally on channel 28 it has destroyed channel 27.
I am no longer able to recieve any Canadian Broadcasts and its a shame because I always respect other peoples or Countys points of veiw, especially politics. I look forward to being able to recieve Free canadian broadcasts in the future.
Thanks for reading
