Mounted the antenna outside; I was getting all available local channels; but CHCH 11.1 seems to have been shut down right now? Also now get 16.1-16.4 early in the morning, seems to disappear around 08:00. Really happy if CHCH comes back.
Reading over the post. I am currently using a Belson leaf antenna living off Baseline near the Experimental farm. I can usually get 14 channels 4-1,6-1,9-1 11-1 13-1 14-1 15-1 24-1,40-1 43-1, 60-1 and 65-1. I had been using a Phillips directional for about 10 years but it finally stopped working in January, I was able to receive 16 channels with the Phillips.
I do not. I rescanned just now (July 4) and several times this summer, and it's mainly the same old story. Of the four channels listed to move (three in Ottawa, plus CHOT-DT in Gatineau), only Christian channel Yes TV (CITS-DT-1) began testing on May 22 (instead of May 2, likely due to current events) and thus completed transition on July 3. Neither Bell Media nor RNC (the latter owns TVA affiliate CHOT-DT) updated viewers regarding their repacks. It's disappointing.
There are several CTV and CTV2 programs that my family enjoys. Question Period, news throughout the day, charity Millionaire, the sparse Mary's Kitchen Crush reruns and more. CJOH-DT at VHF 13 was spotty, and sadly, we missed the CHEO Telethon. We now get VHF 13, but the setup is finnicky, unlike UHF. Bell Canada made $23.96B in revenue in 2019. There is no excuse.
As for French channels, I only get CBOFT-DT reliably. CIVO-DT (Télé-Québec) and CHOT-DT work rarely and sporadically, while CFGS-DT (V affiliate by RNC) never worked in digital. I hope the repack helps, directly or indirectly.
While I do not agree with every program on Yes TV, the channel has done the best job for this year's repack in Ottawa, and I respect that very much.
We are now two days after the recsan day for the 3 channels and none of them have changed. I wonder when they are actually going to change frequencies? I don’t remember seeing any on air notices or any information posted by the stations notifying the change.
I've been running an automated channel scan every few minutes to keep an eye on the repack. CHCH went off the air around 12:35 pm today. CIVO and CFGS disappeared around 4:55 pm. CFGS came back about 10 minutes later, but CIVO is still off the air. Perhaps some work related to CHOT's channel change, since they share an antenna?

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...
