CHWI in Windsor

A place to go for those of you who wish to discuss happenings in OH, IN, IL, WI, and Ontario. OSU sucks, by the way.

CHWI in Windsor

Post by 12thstreetbrainiac » Tue Nov 14, 2017 12:40 pm

Why did CHWI move from 60 to 26 back in 2011 with WLPC going off the air temporarily at that time?

It was part of the US and Canadian digital transitions, where the 700 MHz spectrum (channels 51-69) were removed from TV service and re-allocated to land mobile/cell phone uses. 26 was technically allocated to Windsor, but the CRTC let Detroit use it on an unprotected basis.... once CHWI-TV-60 had to move, WLPC-LP (an unprotected low-power station) was displaced. Thankfully, they found a home on UHF 40.

Actually, 52-69 were removed from all TV services. However, during the analog era, CHWI in Windsor should've went to 26 while WLPC should've went to 40. If WLPC would've moved from 26 to 40 during the analog era, wouldn't the latter station cause massive co-channel interference with CBLN in London and WLMB in Toledo?

CBLN is about 120 miles east, so that's doubtful. WLMB might be more susceptible to interference, being only 75 miles away, BUT.... being low-power, it might be okay.
