I just saw WVTT testing on RF 11 today for the first time, from about 5:30pm to 7:30 pm...
Had 5 Programs on it. One was a color bar test pattern... is gone now...at 19:45
I noticed it on the computer, and was gone before I could scan it in on my TV...
Guessing they must be trying to make the July 1st Phase 10 deadline?
Was a decent signal here, receiving from the back side of the yagi.
WVTT RF 11
strength -53 dBm, SNR 27 dB
strength -50 dBm, SNR 22 dB
Was definitely a better quality SNR than WBBZ here on the same receive antenna.
WVTT rf 11 appears to be testing again today..
It has been up since ~ Noon...
Still about the same signal Strength as WBBZ but several dB better SNR wise here, from the back side of the yagi.
WVTT -59 dBm, 26 dB SNR
WBBZ -58 dBm, 23 dB SNR
So far the 1st program is Movies!, while the 2nd program is Decades.
Thanks for the heads-up majortom, pointed the combo antenna at Buffalo and WVTT was coming in good along with WBBZ. Hard to judge with the weather we've been having lately, but it seems like a good sign.
Scanned WVTT here in Milton with my DB4e last night, didn't really expect to see it. Must've been some tropo though, it's barely making a blip today. It was running 5 subchannels:
34.4 color bars / no content
Rabbitears has business news channel Cheddar listed on 34.4, so that will probably show up at some point. Cheddar runs a free open live stream 24/7 in HD on their website, and across a ton of streaming apps, so there are other ways to get at that content anyway (with better quality).
Getting WVTT here too. Likely will see it often during typical summer tropo.
I don’t see WBBZ vey often, but it is 20km further than WVTT from me.
A little disappointed that none of their channels are offered at 720p.
New WWHC on RF 20 to come on air from south of Buffalo may interfere with CBLT reception in Fort Erie Ontario.Predicted interference in Canada is 4.68 % so its within 5% rule and is allowed.The station is supposed to be an Olean NY station but has decided to move their transmitter 30 km north toward Buffalo .There is more signal reaching Buffalo then Olean.They are approved for 1KW but have applied for 15KW.
WVTT appears to have made some changes with their subchannels, at least the ones that are coming in tonight...
34.1 Informercials- specifically Time Life music
34.2 Unknown, appears to be showing some classic TV programming (not Decades or Movies, check their schedule and didn't match with what was being aired)
34.5 Azteca Clic!
34.6 Azteca Corazon
I thought the Azteca channels were only available on cable or in Mexico... But really enjoying the drama on the telenovelas!
Also, four DTV approvals are currently pending: OMNI.1 and OMNI.2, which wanted to add DTV repeaters in Ottawa on channels 27 (CFMT1) and 66 (CJMT1) respectively;
Radio-Canada wanting a DTV station in Quebec City (CBVT) on channel 12;
and Télé-Québec wanting a DTV station in Montreal (CIVM) on...
It's interesting that Rogers is applying for two out-of-town DTV signals, and no sign of when CHRO-DT, which is local to Ottawa, will build their DTV transmitter. Rogers built a large media complex a few years ago in the Byward Market, two blocks from our place, and I have to wonder whether or...
Has anyone been checking Channel 41 for CICT-DT's possible increased signal level yet? I think that in the next week or so, some activity may occurr. According to my previous conversation with Global, the final peices of the jigsaw were to have come together at the Harvard mast. ??? :)
