The out of core channels for Rochester and Syracuse need to be updated. (And probably 10 and 13 from Rochester are no longer receivable in the GTA anyway, not with their current low power levels.)

Erie, Pa Digital signals

London/St. Thomas Digital (ATSC):
Under this category I would be inclined to leave the Erie DTV channel's off the list. When analog was around they could be had; but the new digital signal's only come in on decent tropo days, at least in the London area. More towards Lake Erie shores (St. Thomas) my understanding is that most Erie DTV station's are also tough to pull in.

WPXD-DT uses 31.1 as its channel number and you're leaving out W66BV (66, moving to digital on 47 to become W66BV-D), WUDT-CA 23 (plans to move to WUDT-LD on 8), and W48AV 48 (Warren) which repeats WPXD-DT.1

Please note that these changes won't be happening for a couple years, but these channels are still in operation.

Erie stations.
I believe if you were to live in south london (white oaks). You should be able to get WICU, WSEE & WQLN. On a regular basis.

Also, What qualifies for included in the list. How many hours a day does a channel need to be recevable?

Oh BTW.

Can you add to the London List. These channels are available quite often.

I heard from others in this forum that CHWI-TV on 16 is available as fringe reception in the London area from Wheatley (with strong co-channel interference from WSEE-DT).

I think that Stampeder asked for concrete signal's, reliable everyday.
That is why I would be inclined to have the Erie DTV channel's off the list.
I have yet to meet or talk to a person in our area that can pull in the Erie's reliable and at long period's without tropo.

Can you add to the London List. These channels are available quite often.

42 CKCO CTV Kitchener, ON Oil Springs, ON
I second the notion for these two channel's to be added.

More relevant reliable stations that can be added to Windsor/Essex/Kent list.
Digital: Cleveland
WEWS-DT ABC 5.1 RF15 The most reliable Cleveland station so far. There most every day including winter.
WJW-DT FOX 8.1 RF08 reception is stable most every day also in winter.
Analog: Chatham/Kent
CBLN-TV CH64 CBC Reliable in Chatham/Kent and eastern Essex co.
CBLFT-TV CH48 SRC/French Reliable in Chatham/Kent and northeast Essex co.
CICO-TV CH59 TVO Reliable in Chatham/Kent and many parts of Essex co.
Analog: Detroit
WDWO-CA TCT on CH18 solid for those in Windsor and available daily all the way to eastern/southeast Essex county even in winter
W66BV-LP TBN on CH66 good reception for those within 0-15km of Detroit. It was already mentioned though I added a reliable reception distance.

Yes, exactly. My yardstick is:
if a new member here follows the best advice and uses the best typical equipment for their situation without taking heroic measures, they are expected to reliably get the following stations all year round with no hassles or odd activity outside of their control.
Thanks for the input so far, folks! :)
