I am in Ottawa South and have the same problem with 9-1, also with 20-1 (SunTV): could receive these in August, they both disappeared on Sep. 1. (I am using rabbit-ear -- don't laugh.) Can receive Global on 6-1, also 4-1, 13-1, 24-1, 30-1, 40-1.Im in Orleans and currently get :
11-1 CHCHDT1 (CHCH) 480i
13-1 CJOH (CTV1) 1080i
14-1 OMNI2 1080i
24-1 TVO 1080i
30-1 CIVO-DT 1080i
40-1 CHOT 1080i
42-1 CTS-HD 1080i
43-1 CHRO (CTV2) 1080i
60-1 OMNI1 1080i
65-1 City TV
I am trying to get 6-1 Global and 9-1 CBOFT.
I could get CBOFT before Sept 1, but can't even pick up the signal now?
Any thoughts on these 2 channels?
You really need to modify your bowtie design per instructions found at this site, the M4 bowtie array discussed in the antennas forum here. The M4 came about by analysing and improving upon the design you built. The M4 has better performance at VHF.
SunTV gave up its over the air rights to become a Cable Specialty Channel (or something like that).I am in Ottawa South and have the same problem with 9-1, also with 20-1 (SunTV): could receive these in August, they both disappeared on Sep. 1.

This is making less and less sense. It has cut off every episode of Colbert report (~1am) since they came back from break. Damn annoying when you are watching an interview...Snowdog,
I suspect you have/are encountering maintenance issues with the transmitters.
Even though the official transition occurred Aug 31st, the work preparing for the transition occurred over several nights typically after midnight during August.
You might want to suggest this when you call or email them."For those watching CTV Ottawa over the air on channel 13.1, we will be going off the air for 4 hours.
If you are watching us on cable, satellite, or over the air on analog channels 6, 8, or 47, regular programming continues unaffected."
Thanks for all the good info. I don't have any of the french channels tuned. I just checked 9.1...All the french ones (30, 34, 40) go down except for CBOFT 9.1. .
I'm not sure I understand your question.I wonder if CJOH is even aware since the are essentially taking the tower down from a bunch of networks. CJOH is usually the first offline right at 1AM, which is annoying since the programming is staggered for "The Colbert Report", it usually ends at 1:07...
you can find contact information on the CTV Ottawa web page. Ask them to delay the shutdown until after 1:07.Is there a contact email for CJOH? Even if I could get some idea when this might end it would be good. Edit: I sent an email to the general CTVottawa address from the web page.
The old analog one.Removing the Antenna for Channel 4?? You mean the old analog one for the new one that actually broadcasts on 25 and gets remapped to 4.1?
Pei james,Hi, first time poster here. I'm suddenly having trouble with Global as of Sept. 8th or 9th!
I get all the UHF local channels in Ottawa and was receiving Global no trouble after the transition on 6.1. However, as of September 8th or 9th, 2011, my reception of global has suffered. I kinda still get it, but it's blocky.
I've been very successful with my OTA setup so far. Here is my setup:
Channel Master 4221HD
Channel Master 7777 Preamp
Winegard VHF antenna.
Oh ya, here is my TVfool link (I've read enough posts to know it will be asked): http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=29&q=id=14f39d4a949e83
I don't know know if the FM trap on the preamp is on or off (which should it be?). I did not clip off those parts of the winegard antenna to exclude FM (I seem to remember something about it in the antenna instructions).
The preamp combines the signals of the two antennas. I guess I should note that the setup is in my attic (yes, I know, for shame). But it has been great so far, I even get channels from the states when the weather cooperates!
Is there something that happened in the last 5 days to impact global? Like I said, I was getting global 100% for the first week after transition and now it is degraded....
