My VHF reception is on the fritz, but from what I have seen, Global CH7 analogue comes in up here. I'm surprised you got it thenewdc.WNGS is beaming in this morning in Stouffville. I guess its just tropo activity.
That is exactly what these broadcasts are all about. They are using their inadequate low powered Springville equipment to broadcast a signal with audio/video content and they're also using the old WKBW 7RF antenna as a repeater to rebroadcast a stronger signal in order to meet the contour criteria. If you check WKBW's old/new antenna coordinates you'll find that their old 7RF is the source of the strongest signals.Since they only have until June 12 maybe they are just getting anything up that they can to not let the license expire.
Sorry to sound skeptical, but anyone transmitting on RF 67 (~791 Mhz) other than the current 700 Mhz Band License owner would be illegal. No Broadcasters have a license in that spectrum anymore since Last June 2009 when it was cleared. It was auctioned off for big $$$ long before it was cleared. They installed a new VHF antenna operating on CH 7 (177 Mhz) to replace the old one on the old tower, simple as that. It even states the exact antenna Model used in their construction permit modification. Which is made by a completely different manufacturer than the original RF 67 Antenna.I'm saying they're likely using the old rf67 antenna to broadcast a weak signal [possibly analog or digital] locally and then rebroadcast a digital signal from the old WKBW 7RF antenna
I hear ya. I think that's just because their Pre-Transition Digital signal rode on the back of WKBW's Digital Signal, so they had a relationship of sorts. They likely had plans to do just that, thus the filing, but then they went bankrupt, so all bets are off on any of that old documentation. TVfool just hasn't caught up with reality yet.One of those coordinates is indeed the old WKBW RF7 tower location.
